Design Snack #13: Designing like it’s actually 2016



View all posts

At the risk of sounding like an infomercial host, I’d like to ask you a question: how would you like to take the most monotonous parts of the design process and make them over 4 times faster?

In this Design Snack episode, I show you exactly how to do that using a quick ecommerce layout as an example. Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • Working smarter with images
  • Using dynamic text areas
  • Pulling content from the web inside of Sketch
  • Making smart, dynamic grids of content that save you tons of time

All of this helpful stuff is made possible by a suite of plugins we just released called Craft, which you can download for free and use with Sketch or Photoshop (Mac and Windows). Go grab a copy for yourself and start designing like it’s actually 2016.
