Overall Satisfaction with Sketch

Sketch gets used at my company mostly for designing full websites or smaller web projects designing out specific modules. It's also used in our wireframing process, and we have it hooked up to InVision and are able to upload our designs straight from sketch to InVision. We sometimes but not always use the prototyping tool to show hover and/or click effects on specific elements.
  • It's a very lightweight program
  • It's able to hook up to InVision for easy uploading and replacing
  • It has cloud-based storage
  • It does not do well with complex SVGs, which can import with problems
  • It is not easy to take Sketch elements and bring them into Adobe programs
  • Prototyping is cool but is also a bit cumbersome to show even simple interactions
  • Time saved in uploading designs
  • Time saved in using a very fast program
  • Time saved in being able to use the same program for both wireframes and design
We went from designing websites in Photoshop to designing in Sketch, and it is certainly much quicker and easier to design in Sketch, and you're more easily able to make sure that our designs are exact in Sketch, as far as spacing exact pixels. I have never used AdobeXD and have only dipped my toe in the water of Figma, but Figma does seem like it could be a very viable alternative.

Do you think Sketch delivers good value for the price?

Did implementation of Sketch go as expected?


Would you buy Sketch again?


Sketch works well for web design. It doesn't have all of the bells and whistles that Photoshop and Illustrator have so while that does make it more limited, it's a very quick and snappy program. I don't think you're able to design at print resolution, so doing any print work is probably still best suited for InDesign.
