Overall Satisfaction with Sketch

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.
