Sketch in a Day

Hands-on Sketch Classes in NYC

Sketch is a Mac app that was built with the specific needs of a modern web designer (or app designer) in mind. Learn how to use Sketch to design user interfaces of websites & apps in our hands-on Sketch courses in New York City. 

Sketch uses Artboards, so you can efficiently design web layouts for mobile, tablet, and desktop (or screens for apps). It’s vector-based, so you can scale for a variety of screen sizes with ease, as well as export hi-res (Retina) graphics for the web or apps. You’ll find tools and features specifically relevant to User Interface (UI) design, native and adjustable grids, and a quick workflow for exporting your work.

If you already know Sketch and want to take your skills to the next level, check out the Sketch Advanced class.

Why Learn Sketch for Web & UI Design?

Unlike some other image editing programs—which were originally created for print, photo retouching, or illustration—the entire focus of the Sketch app is on designing user interfaces.

  • With artboards and layout guides, you can design on popular grid systems (like Bootstrap), making it easier to design responsive webpages.
  • Symbols are where Sketch really shines. They are much more powerful than similar apps, such as Adobe XD. Symbols let you reuse design elements (such as buttons) to create flexible design systems. The content can be customized across instances of a symbol, while maintaining the same appearance. You can globally update symbols, making design changes easier.
  • Exporting graphics from Sketch is quick. Mark what you want to export, select the filetype and size, and you’re ready to export.

Learn Sketch in One Day

“The “In a Day” courses are organized brilliantly; I love that we have time to absorb what the instructor is telling us before trying the exercises ourselves. The instructors are well-informed and so helpful. It is extremely useful to have access to the lessons and class files after the class is over. Each in-a-day class has saved me endless hours of trying to decipher confusing Youtube tutorials!”
