About This Workshop

You must bring a Mac computer to this workshop. Sketch is Mac-only.

Have an idea for an app or website, but been frustrated trying to communicate it to others?

Enter Sketch. Unlike the bloated tools it replaces (see: Photoshop, Illustrator), Sketch is a simple, powerful design tool made specifically for those who design for screens. It has taken the UI/UX design world by storm and designers worldwide have already made the switch.

Why should you, the non-designer, care? Sketch lets you express your product ideas visually, with its intuitive interface. You’ll be able to vividly share your concepts with potential customers, collaborators, and investors.

In this hands-on class, we will take you from knowing nothing about design to creating your first clickable prototype and previewing it on your mobile phone and exporting files for a developer. (PS: While this class doesn’t assume any design background, existing UX/UI designers who want to make the switch to Sketch are most welcome.)

Interested in seeing this class held privately at your organization?
Email us at bospartnerships@ga.co to request more info.

Takeaways

  • Familiarize yourself with the interface
  • How to set up a project file for desktop and mobile design
  • Understand basic design principles using grids, typography, and color theory.
  • Learn basic prototyping skills with Sketch.
  • Share your ideas and create a clickable wireframe.

Preparation

Please bring your Mac laptop with you; this is a very hands-on class. While we love our PC friends, Sketch is Mac-only at the moment.
