Sketch App, by Bohemian Coding, is the next generation of vector-based UI/UX tools. Lighter, faster, and much more cost-effective than Adobe Photoshop it is geared specifically towards the mobile designer. Used by leading companies like Etsy, Facebook, Apple, Stripe, and Google Sketch App enables designers to crank out wireframes and pixel-perfect comps with incredible velocity. Conducive to thinking less linearly about mobile interfaces it will open the minds of UX/UI designers and make slicing graphics for development a breeze. After this session, you will seriously consider switching to Sketch App.
Adobe has been an (expensive) staple in the toolkits of most designers for years. SketchApp is an inexpensive, open-source Mac App that will change the way designers approach mobile UI/UX design. We guarantee it. We know that switching design tools can be an exciting, risky, and scary endeavor for a company of any size. And because SketchApp is an up-and-coming tool there aren't a lot of support forums or classes available to help companies up the learning curve. In this session we will share our first-hand experience with Sketch (including our gripes) and introduce fellow designers to the opportunities for increased efficiency and precision it creates.
