- [Instructor] The Sketch application has made it much easier and faster to design for UI. For one, it's removed some of the fluff of other applications and is focused solely on creating vector images, mocking up user interfaces, and has offered several templates to get you started if you're new to Sketch. With Sketch, it's very easy to stay organized if you maintain labels, pages, and art boards. One advantage of Sketch is that you can see your entire screen-flow all on one page.
With Sketch, you also have the capability to add some plug-ins, UI kits, and other free resources. Sketch is a powerhouse program which will make designing for UI an absolute dream, which is why it's become a favorite of design houses everywhere.
