Sketch for Mac is an innovative and fresh look at vector drawing for the Mac. Its intentionally minimalist design is based upon a drawing space of unlimited size and layers, free of palettes, panels, menus, windows, and controls. Though simple to use, it offers powerful vector drawing and text tools like perfect Boolean operations, symbols, and powerful rulers, guides, and grids. Sketch gives you the power, flexibility, and speed you always wanted in a lightweight and easy-to-use package.
Sketch for Mac OS is built for modern graphic designers, and it shows in every fiber of the app. From a flexible workflow with support for Multiple Pages and Artboards. Powerful features like Symbols and Shared Styles are there to make reusing elements quick and easy. Easily create complex shapes with our state-of-the-art vector Boolean operations and take advantage of our extensive layer styles. Although it is certainly easier to use than Dreamweaver, it’s still not a tool that beginners to design will find very manageable.
Sketch files are saved in its own file format (. sketch), they can also be saved in other popular formats, like; PNG, TIFF, Web, and JPG. Since then, its 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 Graphics Design Tool features:
Vectors mean scalability. Sketch’s Vector shapes easily adapt to changing styles, sizes, and layouts, allowing you to avoid a lot of painful hand-tweaking. Sometimes though, you still need to account for physical pixels. Sketch supports this, meaning that you can fine-tune when you need to.
In Sketch, every shape you create is an item in the Layers List. No more hidden paths. With our flexible Boolean operations, you can combine paths to create complex shapes, while all the parts stay 100% editable. Working on a large document? Name and group layers to keep things organized, then search by name when you need to find something.
Dimensions, positioning, opacity, blending modes all the details that really matter in a design. Want a unique place where you can control every one of these aspects for each object? Meet the new, completely reimagined Inspector.
Here at Bohemian Coding, we are designers too, so we face the same problems that you face every day. That’s why we crafted this incredibly powerful set of tools to make our lives easier and happier.
In UI design, repeating elements is something very common: buttons, bars, bubbles all sorts of things. Copying and pasting soon become unworkable for big documents, when you make a change and need it to be reflected across every repeat.
As designers one of the most tedious and non-creative parts of our workflow is the need to cut-up, export, and (with the advent of retina devices) resize assets after every change. Sketch’s built-in exporting tools help to automate the process, making it a breeze.
The Sketch is built exclusively for the Mac, and it takes full advantage of Apple’s frameworks. From the raw graphics power of Quartz, the beautiful crispness of Retina screens, through to usability features like Auto Save and Versions, we support all the native goodness that you’ve come to expect.
