I get this question pretty often:

“What are your favorite Sketch plugins?”

So for anyone that missed my previous post here’s my latest list “2019” edition.

Recently some of the best plugins have gone paid too. I’d be curious to know if anyone here has decided to support the creators and got the paid version? I have but curious about others.

Depending on your workflow and where you are at with Sketch proficiency wise you might find some plugins more useful than others.

Runner has gone paid (as it should have a long time ago)… and it’s still totally worth the money. …

“Adaptable” bottom aligned menus (Left) and Top-Right aligned menu with Anima App

At the moment the only way in Sketch to make an “adaptable” Bottom and Top-Right Pinned Menu using Anima App is to “hack it”. (If you landed here it’s probably because you tried it before and didn’t really work fo you… It was a problem for me too, hence this hack 🤪)

Hello everyone!

Lots of big news as usual :) Sketch 49 brings quite a few improvements. Some obvious like prototyping within Sketch and some less obvious like easier-to-look-at override panels and find-and-replace colors. Framer allows now to simply copy and paste from Sketch and more.

Don’t miss the upcoming events if you are in NYC.

In Sketch 48 it was already possible to find and replace colors (although I missed that…) but now the Find and Replace Colors feature has been improved!

This is a recap of the event and demos we had last night at PencilWorks in GreenPoint.

Thanks to all that made it! It was great to meet a lot of new faces and talented people!

We had an amazing demo by Or Arbel of Timeline by Anima (first time shown publicly in the US! 🚀). If you want to support their work and the Design&Prototype Marketplace (soft launched last night, I need feedback!) make sure to pre-order through this link to get 25% off.

I am very excited for what the new year will bring us! So much happened in 2017 in the UX/UI Design and Prototyping space!

A big one for me was the evolution of symbols in Sketch and design systems as well as collaboration among team members (❤️ Abstract!), and easier handoffs and if you work with React, lots of exciting things there too.

I’ll be running a few Sketch Workshops in January:
Basic if you are starting now
Advanced if you want to learn more advanced workflows and techniques.

Depending on availability, I organize custom workshop for teams.

What would you like to learn or improve in 2018? …
