- [Renata] Being able to work quickly while delivering beautiful, unique icons is important in today's busy world. And Sketch's focus on user interface and speed has made it a go-to program for designers everywhere. My name is Renata Phillippi and I've been working as a UX designer in Sketch for over four years. In this course we will cover how to conceive a design and get started in Sketch, take an in-depth look at designing an icon from using Boolean operations, editing our shapes, creating shadows, and much more.
We will also take a look at exporting your icon from size and file format, compression, uneven image preview. By the end you will have learned and created some simple map icons and with your new skills you will be able to expand your knowledge into other icons as well. So let's get started.
