Moving from .ai to .sketch

And then Sketch happened

I resisted installing Sketch for the longest time. But as soon as I did, it didn’t take much time for me to accept it as my go-to tool for interface design.

Adding photos in Sketch 52

For any shape in a document, right-click (or use the toolbar’s Data icon) and select ‘Unsplash › Random Photo’ (or ‘Search Photo…’) from the options. This feature grabs curated images directly from the Unsplash Photo Library. 🤘

Unsplash: meeting creatives at the point of creation

I’ve had the chance to meet and hear from creatives from everywhere who tell us how much Unsplash has helped them in their careers. I share exactly the same sentiments: I’ve been working with Unsplash photos ever since I discovered it 5+ years ago, first as a student, then as a freelancer, and today as a product designer. Readily accessible, each photo on Unsplash has the ability to elevate the quality of any project. We see it everyday in the hundreds of examples on Dribbble where designers make use of Unsplash images for their work. I can only imagine how many more projects will finally benefit from having Unsplash images in their work with this new integration in Sketch.
