Sketch has helped me produce my best work, at a much faster rate

When starting to learn Sketch, my first response was to ask myself "Is this better than the tools I already use? Why change from my tried, and trusted applications".

For me, the key reason to change was the increased speed in which I could produce my very best work. It made the Adobe applications of old, feel bloated, and restrictive.

I made the decision to start using Sketch for all my UI design work, and haven't looked back. And hopefully this guide will do the same for you.

Gain a better understanding of Sketch with this hands-on approach

There are a lot of tutorials dotted around that can show you certain methods of using Sketch, but learning in this fragmented way can be frustrating to say the least.

With Discover Sketch App you will be able to gain a much greater understanding by working through a real-world application from start to finish.

Written in an easy to understand manner, with many images to reference, It's the perfect guide to help increase your knowledge of Sketch App, and improve your designs at the same time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this guide only for beginners?

Yes, and No. For new users of Sketch it gives a detailed overview of the application to help you get started. But it also covers advanced features, that seasoned users may have missed. From speaking to a couple of long-time users of Sketch, who had the chance to read a preview copy of the guide, they have commented on how they were able to pick up some great advice, and methods of working with the application that they had maybe missed in the past. "There’s always something new to be learnt in Sketch" is my motto.

I'm a developer. Is this guide suitable for me?

Absolutely. If you're a developer that has wanted to bring UI design into your skillset, but have been put off by complex applications like Photoshop or Illustrator, you will be pleasantly surprised by the ease-of-use in which you can become a competent designer with Sketch, and this guide will get you up to speed in the shortest amount of time.

Which package should I choose?

This all depends on what your budget is, and how quickly you want to learn as much as you can about the application, in the time you have available. The book by itself, with it’s informative writing, and abundance of images to guide you is a perfect introduction. But if you want to learn as much as you can about Sketch, and feel more comfortable with actual Sketch files to reference, and dissect, the two higher packages would be more suited.

Are we creating designs for a website or iOS app with this guide?

In the guide you will learn, step-by-step how to create a simple website design for Desktop, Tablet, and Mobile screen sizes. But everything you learn from this guide can be easily applied to working on designs for iOS apps.

What if I'm not happy with the purchase?

I want you to be truly happy with the guide. But if that is not the case, I offer a 30 Day returns policy from the date of purchase. Just contact me, and I’ll promptly provide a refund.

I still have one more question to ask?

If you have any further questions, that are not covered on this page, please contact me, and I’ll do my very best to answer them.

"This guide, in my opinion, is the best choice for beginning to familiarize yourself with Sketch. It will help you master practically all the subtleties of working with this remarkable program."
