Start your journey with Sketch by signing up and instantly access your very own Workspace. Next, download the Mac app and try out all its features — free for 30 days.
Creating a Workspace
Creating your Sketch account and Workspace
Follow these steps to create your Workspace:
Sign up for a Sketch account. If you’re creating a Workspace for your team, we recommend you use a company email.
If you already have a Sketch Account but want to create a new Workspace, sign in to your account, select the Workspace switcher menu on the top left, choose Create a New Workspace and follow the next steps.
- Name your Workspace and (optionally) upload a Workspace image. Admins can change the name and logo of your Workspace at any point.
Invite people to your Workspace right away by clicking Invite People. Type their email and assign them a role. You can invite people later on if you prefer.
- Click Start Using Sketch. You’ll be assigned as an Admin and as an Editor — every Workspace must have at least Editor. You can change your role after you’ve finished setting up your Workspace. Finally, click Continue to the Workspace.
And you’re done! You’ll have 30 days to try Sketch for free without adding credit card details, so be sure to download the Mac app and give it a try.
To keep using your Workspace after the 30-day trial, choose a monthly or yearly subscription — or even a Mac-only license (in case you don’t want a Workspace).
If you cancel your subscription before the trial ends, we won’t charge you anything.
Installing the Mac app
Now that you have Sketch account and created a Workspace, be sure to download and intall the Mac app.
Installing the Mac app
Installing the iOS app
With the iOS app you can use your iPhone or iPad to browse your Workspace(s), view documents, test prototypes and mirror designs as you edit them in the Mac app.
iOS app requirements
To use the app, you’ll need:
- An iPhone running iOS 16.0 or later, or an iPad running iPadOS 16.0 or later
- A Sketch subscription with access to one or more Workspaces
- An internet connection
- Edit permissions for any documents you want to mirror
Although the app requires an internet connection, you don’t need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Mac to mirror a document you’re editing. Also, Workspace documents you’ve previously opened will still be available to browse if you are no longer connected to the internet.
Because Sketch — View & Mirror uses our Workspaces technology to power document mirroring, it does not support Mac-only licenses.
Signing in or out
After you’ve created a Sketch account, use your email and password to sign into the web app and (if you’re an Editor) the Mac app to edit documents in your Workspace. If your Workspace is set up with SSO (Single Sign-On), select Sign in with SSO instead.
If you need to sign out and sign in to a different account or Workspace, tap on your profile on the bottom left of your Workspace and click Sign Out.
Subscription? Or license?
If you’re enjoying Sketch, a subscription gets you the complete Sketch experience — including access to the Mac app, the web app, the iOS app and a Workspace. You can opt for either a monthly or a year subscription. Just keep in mind that a yearly subscription saves you $24 every year over a monthly subscription at $12 per month!
We also offer a Business subcription that grants you priority support, a dedicated customer success manager, customized reviews and terms, single sign-on (SSO), invoiced-based billing, unlimited cloud storage and more. You can switch to a Business Plan yourself via your Workspace settings — or get in touch with us directly.
You can get a license that gives you access to the Mac app for a full year. With a Mac-only license you won’t have access to Workspaces, so you’d need to save your documents locally.
Also, bear in mind that the Mac-only license doesn’t include the powerful collaborative and sharing tools you’d get with a subscription.
