Attention Mac Users! Think you may need a graphics tool to do parts of your job? Adobe Photoshop has been that tool for many for a long time, but it is a bit expensive for the casual user. In contrast, Sketch is cheaper and was clearly made for those without much of a graphic design background. In this talk we'll discuss how to use the tools in Sketch so that you can quickly start using it in your vector/interface design projects. Note: This is for Sketch ( ), not SketchUp.

Also: you can download a free two week trial prior to this course to try-before-you-buy.
