What is Sketch?

Sketch is a product design platform, which helps businesses create, test, and collaborate on ideas with team members using color variables, layouts, shared libraries, vector editing tools, plugins, and more. Designers can zoom into designs for precise editing at the pixel level, export, or share assets on a drag-and-drop interface, and set up resizing rules based on screen sizes according to requirements.

Sketch managed to create an awesome tool that has amazing UI, and the features as well. It is easy to use, especially if you have worked with previous software for UX/UI design.

The user experience is terrible. Also the prototyping feature is poor.

It only sucks when your teammates don't have Macbook so you can't collab with them by Sketch.

I love Sketch!!!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I love Sketch. I've dropped the practically limitless other options that I've picked up over the years to almost exclusively use this tool for all my designs.

Pros

Easy to use, quick to learn, and an every day tool in my office. I have done everything from web design to logo design to photo editing in Sketch (not recommended, but awesome what can be done). I absolutely love it, and I'm really impressed with the team and pricing model as well!

Cons

Sometimes it is a bit slow to get features that I would hope for (I'm talking to you, dropper tool shortcut key), but overall it just does an excellent job at letting me do my job.

It's a dumb version of Illustrator that's somehow become essential

Reviewed 2 years ago

Somehow this bungled mess of a design program has become a can't-live-without UX tool for our company. The tight integration with Invision is probably the reason for that.

Pros

Layers. The layer management is pretty easy considering you can end up with thousands of layers in no time, you don't really have to think about them too much and items are easy to move between groups and layers.

Cons

It's slow. If the comp has over 50 screens, good luck getting anything done. Randomly stops working and spins the beachball for 2 minutes. Saving takes minutes and has no feedback that it's working. Constantly makes my laptop fans spin like a turbine just to change a font color.

Converting to vector files and label work

Reviewed a month ago

Can make beautiful labels when I set aside large chunks of time. I"m not a graphic professional, so it fills the gap for me when I need something that isn't to elaborate rather than paying a graphic designer.

Pros

Mac Compatible and cheaper than competition.

Cons

Steep learning curve. I need to convert files to vector once in a while. Fine for occasional use.

Its on of the best tool for UI/UX designers.

Reviewed 3 years ago

The reason why people are switching to sketch from other software is that unlike Adobe illustrator, Sketch is designed by designer for desgner for digital interfaces specifically. The UI and tools are designed in way that they are easier to use while the plugins help users to go into the detail of a particular action.

Pros

One of the main reason why people choose sketch over other similar software is its plugins. Plugins link Autolayout, Magic mirror and Git sketch makes your life easier. It can be easily connected to Invision for easy prototyping and presentation. It is also extremely easy to learn sketch if you are trying to switch from Adobe illustrator or photoshop.

Cons

I find that Sketch is almost perfect while there are a couple of things that can be improved like the software is only available on Mac OS and not on windows which makes it difficult to share editable files with some clients and freelancers. Unlike Figma, sketch which doesnt allow to access your file from anywhere and also doesnt allow multiple people to work on a same file.

Sketch is a great design tool.

Reviewed 6 days ago
Pros

Sketch is easy to get started with, and has powerful design tools. The component library implementation is good for supporting a design system. There are a lot of third-party plugins that extend the features of Sketch a lot.

Cons

It is sometimes not that stable, probably due to the great third-party plugin support. Printing of pages and art boards is clumsy and frustrating. Prototyping is primitive at this stage, and the collaboration and commenting tools are not great.
