Sketch was being used only by the design team. We were using it to iterate on existing products, defining flows and creating new ideas, concepts and wireframes.
  • Creation of wireframes
  • High fidelity prototypes (not including animation)
  • User interface design
  • Doesn't have a collaborative way of working
  • Slow on updates
  • Bad interaction with the community
It's good for designers who work alone on that specific design. The way you can create components design is incredible. The community is huge, so you can find any kind of resources or plugins for Sketch.

Sketch Review: "Best application for UX Professionals"

As a designer in a company of Windows users, Sketch unfortunately isn't used as wide-spread as it could be because it's a Mac-only application. However for me it handles a number of uses in doing user interface design and user experience. To name a few uses:
  • Symbol Library allows for reuse of UI elements
  • Prototyping brings ideas to life
  • Clean interface brings efficiency to the design process
  • Prototyping. Create interactive designs, publish and share for feedback
  • Design Library. Create a library of commonly used design elements from type to icons
  • Continually Updated. There's always something new happening with Sketch, it's updated frequently with new and better tools
  • Tools. Sketch allows for third-party app development so that the community can make tools that work with Sketch
  • Photo-editing is minimal
  • Work flow symbols would be nice for building flow charts
  • Prebuilt templates would be cool
Sketch is well-suited for any user experience situation. Whether you're creating a robust, high-fidelity application or a minimal, low-fidelity concept, Sketch has you covered. For instance, say that you have an idea of how a user should interact with an application. Quickly design that experience and the steps it takes to finish the process.

  • Sketch is great for saving multiple artboards in one file and keeping like-minded documents together.

  • Sketch can be a bit buggy when it comes to saving documents or working in the latest version. If you don't have the most up-to-date version, the app can crash frequently.
  • It's not great for transferring design assets quickly like it is with Adobe products.
  • Drilling down into specific layers can be a bit convoluted.
Sketch is great if you need to make lots of iterations to a document and share with people. It's also great for compiling lots of project files into one document through the various art boards.

Sketch Review: "Reliable and trustworthy"

We use Sketch for basically all of our web and product design needs. The main users are the design team, with some stakeholders also opening Sketch when need be. It solves our UI design needs as the leader in the industry.
  • Libraries — able to manage design system components comprehensively
  • Prototyping — having native prototyping built right in is so much more convenient than looping in another tool
  • Shareable — sharing Sketch designs with coworkers is easy, either via Abstract or Zeplin or with the easy-to-use built-in export options
  • Color library management is still a bit wonky
  • Not super speedy
  • Can crash sometimes
Perfect for product, user interface, user experience, web design, or whatever you call it at your organization. Some examples would include designing apps, websites or interfaces for other screens. Less suited for print design or photo editing.

"A Sketch Review from an entry-level Designer"

I use Sketch on a daily basis to complete my design work. While using Sketch I have created vector icons, lo to mid-fi wireframes, all the way to hi-fi visual mockups for my ongoing projects. As a freelancer, it's a great tool and a solid alternative to Adobe Illustrator with a lower learning curve than most design software out there in the market. Whether if you're an entry-level designer or a seasoned veteran in any type of design (graphic, print, industrial, or UX) you'll want to add Sketch to your design toolbelt.
  • $99 dollars a year for the Sketch license
  • Thousands of templates you can find online to help jumpstart your designs
  • Whether you know the Adobe CC or not, learning Sketch will be a breeze either way
  • Symbols and reusability of artboards
  • Limited illustration support, logo design isn't possible in Sketch
  • Only available on MACOS
  • Exports can sometimes come out pixelated, export preview in Sketch doesn't always tell the full story
Sketch is well-suited for designers that are looking to build mobile and web designs quickly. There is also a prototyping feature in Sketch that allows you to quickly try out your design before you export your mocks to InVision.

Sketch is not well-suited for graphic designers looking to build a poster or graphic from an illustration, I would stick to Illustrator for work of that nature/caliber.
