Today, I received two emails from both of my favourite interactive prototyping tools, InVision and also UXPin. Both have announced varying levels of integration with Sketch. (This won't be a review of either product, we'll let you try both and make the decision for yourself) What this means for you guys is that now it’s almost too easy to mock-up a… read more

The first questions regarding our Q&A series have arrived and so we wanted to take the chance and answer them here: Evan asked on Twitter: “In Illustrator I hold down shift and things are restricted to precise movements of 45º, 90º, etc. How do I do this with Sketch?” Basically it’ the same in Sketch. If you hold down the shift key when rotatin… read more

8 tips to convince your boss to buy Sketch 3

by Alex Wu on

Okay, we’ve established that Sketch is pretty awesome if you’re using it for the purpose that it was intended for and even sometimes when you’re not &ehllip; BUT forking out the asking price is a stretch for you (in which case maybe it might be better asking for a raise instead) “jokes”.

Compared to other design applications Sketch is rather easy to use (I’m looking at you Adobe!) It has a sleek and tidy interface, the options are limited (yet powerful) and there’s even an official documentation. Still there will be times when you want to achieve something and don’t know how or just can’t find the thing. Since I spend a reasonable amount … read more

It’s been a long time

When I announced that I won’t be able to maintain sketchtips anymore for a while I was partly sad and partly relieved. Sad because I achieved so much with the site and knew that I helped countless people to get the most out of Sketch. On the other hand I was also relieved because sketchtips had stagnated for me quite a bit. As a web-designer I had m… read more

by Christian Krammer on

With the advent of Sketch 3.2 many new features will find their way into the app. It’s really evident that Bohemian listened to their customers (you!) and implemented features that were long overdue and potentially requested multiple times.

Typically, we at Sketchtips are more interested in stable versions and official releases but I’ve spent a few hours with the latest beta (link at bottom of article) and have come away impressed (not unusual) enough that I had to mention it here.

by Alex Wu on

I’ve been a big fan of Sketch and Christian’s blog since first discovering Sketch 2.0 on the recommendation of a friend who converted from Adobe Illustrator. I’m extremely excited to pick up the mantle and carry this while Christian is on his sabbatical and he indulges other pursuits. For my initial post, I was going to go talk a little about the team … read more
