Introduction to Sketch

Video 1 in a Special Sketch Series




Hey! Joseph here. Welcome to lesson one in an exclusive video series for on learning sketch.

For the first 10 years of my professional design career, Photoshop was my weapon of choice for interface design. It was my go-to tool. Nothing even came close in my book for interface design. As the web/ui/visual design industry evolved and other software started popping up, I honestly kinda (foolishly) resisted them. Dumb.

Whelp, fast-forward to a few years ago when I pulled my head out of the sand and I finally saw my first legit demo of Sketch. It finally clicked for me. I realized “Oh CRAP… I could do stuff literally 2X or 3X faster in Sketch than Photoshop. Now that Sketch is my primary interface tool of choice, I can’t imagine relying on Photoshop for interface design. Not. Gonna. Happen.

Now, don’t burn my inbox down. I still love Photoshop and use it all the time… just not for interfaces.

Am I saying that Sketch is the only tool out there? Heck no. There’s multiple options out there now better than Photoshop for interface design, and Sketch is a darn good one.

This video is video one in a multi-part series where I will be designing a web page from scratch using Sketch. Each video in the series I’ll be adding more to the page and slinging more Sketch tips your way.

Watch me over the shoulder as I design this web page and give Sketch a proper intro.

Enjoy!

P.S. Stay tuned for the next lesson! We'll dive deeper into Sketch and continue designing the rest of the web page.
