Ideal product for UI/UX/Web Designers

I think Sketch is well suited for most design professionals working on any digital designs, especially those working with teams on design collaboration. Sketch is also very good for managing design systems and guidelines. Its integrations make it a great collaboration software with other teams, such as development and other stakeholders and reviewers of the project.

Sketch is a great vector design tool

Sketch is great for pretty much any vector-based graphics. My primary use for Sketch is for designing websites, but it could probably also be used for print. I also use Sketch to export any graphics I need for the web. It can be set to export a graphic in multiple formats at the same time. They have been adding more collaboration features to Sketch recently, although I have not yet tried those features.

Most Robust Design Tool, Lacks Collaboration

  • Sketch is great for product teams for creating pixel-perfect materials for the associated IT teams. It's partnerships with InVision and Abstract mean that there are two great options for web-based hand-offs (look those up in conjunction). If you are building a website and not an ongoing product, there may be some cheaper tools. However, if you or your team are continually turning out screens for products, it's a needed tool.
  • The other thing to consider, since there is no built-in prototyping or collaboration, if you have a large team working together, it's best to partner with other tools, that'll drive your cost up. But, for us, it's completely worth it.

It helps our Design Team create awesome landing pages in just a couple of days. Also, it's greatly improved our design workflow. We can have all of the pages of a site, and the different screen sizes, in one document, and then if we need to change a header or symbol, we can edit it in one place, and it affects all of the pages.
There is a feature for responsive design, but it's quite basic and does not link to different breakpoints when one element of the screen might go to a different place according to the user's device resolution.

Sketch: The Industry Leader In Design Tools

Sketch is a great tool for wireframes and mockups. However, it's lacking a lot in terms of prototyping and user testing. So if your goal is to do visual design, then Sketch is one of the best tools out there. However, if you're wanting an "all in one" type of tool, then you're going to find that Sketch is lacking unless you're utilizing the plugins.

Definitely suited for marketing or other creative fields. It is just as usable as Illustrator or Photoshop but is much more simple in its design. This doesn't mean you can do less, rather, you can do more because all of the extra stuff is not cluttering the screen as you work.

If you need high fidelity prototypes or mockups with an easy learning curve, Sketch is hard to beat. It's the industry standard. It has integration with almost everything and a vast sea of plugins to provide things the software doesn't do out of the box. This product isn't as well suited for many members of a team all working on a single project. Figma will be the one to beat in that regard.

I have used Sketch to design adverts for events, YouTube still, and to modified an email template that one of our designers had initially created. It's straightforward to pick up new skills and doesn't have the intimidating friction to enter in as a user, as some Adobe products do.

Sketch has worked really well for us in projects where our team is internal (so we all have Mac machines), where there is a no need for distance real-time collaboration, and for making designs very fast and intuitively (which is helpful when you’re working with a product that involves lots of feedback incorporation).

Sketch has been a little difficult for us in scenarios where we’re working with contractors who do not have Sketch, and when we need to be able to collaborate with project team members remotely. In these cases, we tend to find workarounds.

As lightweight, simple, and design-friendly as an actual sketch

I think Sketch is a wonderful tool for just about any product or design team (unless you use PCs). Sketch is lightweight, fast, easy to use, and gets the job done. Even if you use another tool for major prototyping, wireframing, etc., Sketch is a great option for hosting a design/symbol library and style guide. Its plugins make it very easy to use in conjunction with another tool.

Sketch is an excellent tool for creating wireframes with custom symbols you can share quickly across your organization

Likelihood to Recommend

Sketch is well suited for the following:
  • Quick mockups of UI ideas to gather feedback
  • Creating custom UI elements you can reuse throughout your project or share as a library with collaborators
  • Full UI comps which can be used via sync for feedback in InVision or within AdobeXP for prototype creation
  • Creating responsive systems requiring multiple size views of a screen
Sketch is less suited for creating system diagrams and workflows with connections that are maintained and automatically flow as objects are moved around on the screen.

Sketch: From Product Perspective

Sketch is suitable for startups who have fewer designers, for bigger companies Adobe Cloud might be more helpful since it is more powerful in collaboration. Sketch is also very good when used along with tools like Zeplin and InVision. I think the company has improved a lot and in the future, if they have a direct to code feature, it will be great.

I would recommend Sketch to solo freelance interactive designers who are working on Mac. All other situations I'd probably recommend Figma, it's better all around, or if you love messing with plugins all the time. Sketch can be very powerful combined with third-party plugins, but you get to a point where it's barely the same program at a certain point.

Pixel perfect made easy with Sketch

Vetted Review

I think Sketch is a great tool for design for those that may not want to be tied to the workflow of an Adobe suite and have to switch and swap out tools for a variety of needs. If you are not trying to do photo editing or have to do some blending to photos, but are trying to do pixel-perfect layouts with custom icons, shadowing and other effects, Sketch is a great tool. Personally, I have used Adobe's tools but was never an expert in them. Sketch is a quick study and you can build amazing design assets that are easy to share and output. If you build exports of image files for a variety of formats to support many platforms like web, mobile, website etc. that is easy to automate.

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 a must-have for product teams, as well as a really useful tool for marketing teams. We use it to do everything from product design to social graphics. It's a simple, yet robust platform and it's only $99 a year for the license. At that cost, it's one of the very best investments we've made for our team.

A Powerful, Forward-Thinking Web Design Tool That Makes It Easy to Transition from Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator

Likelihood to Recommend

Sketch is recommended for anyone designing websites and other digital projects. Whether you are a freelance, work for a small agency, internal team or part of a large organization, Sketch is powerful enough and simple enough to work for nearly all situations. There are a fair amount of legacy "photoshop or illustrator" web designers that have resisted the move to another tool, but I think Sketch is an easy transition from the Adobe suite.

  • Prototyping - Easily create prototypes.
  • Designs - Well suited in case of visual designs.
  • Transitioning - If you had been using another software with clashes from your internal team on UI elements and frequent changes and need a fast pace designing it would be best tool to opt for this tool, and learn it in lesser time.

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.
