Sketch - The digital design toolkit
Sketch is a vector-based design tool for Mac with a focus on screen design. It’s used primarily by screen designers who create websites, icons, and user interfaces for desktop and mobile devices. For beginners and industry professionals alike, Sketch’s powerful and easy-to-use tools allow designers to focus on what they do best; design.
From its conception Sketch was tailored to the needs of digital designers and it shows in every fibre of the app. Since then, Sketch’s popularity and fan-base has been ever increasing, and is now widely-recognized, and the design tool of choice for many digital companies and startups throughout the world.
Sketch’s functionality is extended thanks to our fantastic third-party developers who have created many plugins to help speed up the design workflow. Sketch also integrates seamlessly with many prototyping and collaborating apps.
Sketch is built for designers like you.
With useful features, an intuitive interface and powerful plugins built by a community of developers, it helps you focus on what you do best.
