Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding hero text and a button, part of Sketch Essential Training: The Basics (2015).
- Now we'll add a textbox…and a button to the hero area…over top of our background graphic.…So I'll come up here and zoom out a little bit.…Space bar to move this around.…Let's go up to the Insert panel.…Let's come down and choose Text.…And then with the type till selected,…I'll come over here to the negative space,…against the red.…Click and drag out a text block.…We'll type in Add interest with natural textures.…Once that's in place,…let's select all the characters.…
I use Open Sans here.…We'll set the weight to Bold.…I'll come down here and set the size to 48.…And then down here for line spacing…we'll set this to 44.…Then I'll come in here, select this…and just move this around a little bit.…Next we'll add a text block for the button.…So back to insert.…Come down and choose Text.…Click and drag…We're going to say,…Get advice from designers.…
I'll select this text,…change the font weight back to Regular.…We'll set the size back down to 20,…set the line height down to 27.…And we'll select this.…Position this about right here.…
