Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video About this course, part of Sketch Essential Training: The Basics (2015).
- Now Sketch is described by its creators as being a lightweight and easy-to-use design tool for the Macintosh. The design community has been using Sketch to design everything, from user experiences for applications to logos and brand identities, flow charts, information architecture strategies, screens for inclusion in prototyping environments, and even full-fledged web design. And designers are finding more and more uses for this design tool everyday. Now in this course, we'll be using Sketch to design a layout for our responsive website, including four different screen sizes. This project will give us the opportunity to use a wide range of features in the software, including things like creating type and object styles, as well as using art boards with varying sizes.
And once we complete our layouts, we'll use the powerful export features in Sketch, allowing us to quickly provide ready-to-use, optimized web graphics that we can hand off to our web designers and front-end developers for inclusion in the final development of our web design.
