About Sketch

Sketch is the definitive tool for digital design. It’s used primarily by screen designers who create websites, icons, and user interfaces for desktop and mobile devices. For beginners and industry professionals alike, Sketch’s powerful tools, gentle learning curve and intuitive UI allow designers to focus on what they do best; design.

From its conception Sketch was tailored to the needs of digital designers and it shows in every fibre of the app. Since 2011 Sketch’s popularity and fan-base have grown and there are now over one million designers using the app to transform their ideas into incredible products, every day.

Thanks to an extensive plugin ecosystem almost anything is possible with Sketch. Whether you want to speed up your workflow, add data to your designs, or create advanced animations, with hundreds of plugins available Sketch has everything you need. Sketch also integrates seamlessly with many existing prototyping, collaboration and version control apps.

Now with prototyping built-in, Sketch makes it easier than ever to take your designs from ideation through to realization, without ever leaving the app, and with Shared Libraries on Sketch Cloud you can finally have a single source of truth to create, share and collaborate on designs with everyone on your team, no matter where they are.

We’re committed to introducing the next generation of designers to Sketch by providing educational discounts of 50% to students, teachers, and academic institutions. We also strive to help teams and companies adopt Sketch by offering volume discounts.

Sketch is available to purchase from our store for $99 USD which includes one year of updates. Sketch requires macOS Mojave (10.14.4) or newer.
