Overall Satisfaction with Sketch

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
  • It's not free
  • It's quite a closed system, so if you don't have the app, there's only so much you can do with a file
  • Crashing, etc., can cause wasted time
Unlike the Adobe Suite, Sketch was specifically designed for designing digital interfaces. Having built-in prototyping, useful default artboard sizes and shared libraries makes it really useful. Adobe XD is really exciting, but honestly, our files are so invested in Sketch it would be hard to switch. InVision Studio is also really exciting—especially for motion and prototyping—but it does not feel stable enough to fully move into yet.
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.
