Essential Sketch Plugins for Designers

Sketch is an application for Mac that is entirely focused on creating stunning user interfaces for mobile apps and websites. Today due to its rapid rise in popularity it has become a praiseworthy replacement for Photoshop and Illustrator, as everything is already in vector. This means that you don’t have to worry about designing for multiple devices. Besides, clients love it as well because it helps us do better design, faster.

Another great thing is that Sketch community is shares lots of plugins that can be easily downloaded and used. In this post we have brought our favorites for boosting productivity together in one place.
