Overall Satisfaction with Sketch

  • From Wire framing of a new product to UI Designing sketch is involved from day 1 of the product development.
  • The use of sketch starts with the UI/UX team, and revolves around the development teams as well.
  • The designing team can layout a design and developers can collaborate alongside for changes and tweaks.
  • Use of extensions - Directly generate code from the sketch and paste it on for HTML/Swift/Objective-c/Kotlin/Java.
  • Exports - Directly export the design to other software like Zeplin.
  • Ease of use - The easiness that the tool carries is quite good as compared to other software in the same category, even a novice can start using it in very less time.
  • Community Support - The best part is that the software is used by a very large audience, and the community support is quite large and good.
  • Quick saves - sometimes quick saves don't work, and the progress for last few minutes is lost.
  • Layers choices - Choosing layers among nested layers becomes complicated if you have not kept this in mind from the start.
  • Pre-designed styles - Some pre-designed styles can be given to be built upon to reduce design time even more.
  • Change iterations vs time to get final results have been optimized.
  • Prototyping has become easier.
  • Style guides and code generators have again helped to reduce development time for other teams as well.
  • Animations are missing in the tools, which would be great to have which requires adhering to other tools.
  • Learning curve is good.
  • Transitioning from other softwares does not require attending week long classes to get started
  • Onboarding process is good.
  • 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.
