Description

Welcome to the preview version of the Hands on Sketch training for learning mobile app design. In this version of the course, I’ll walk you step-by-step through the process of duplicating your first app screen, a few popular logos and a really cool metallic button, all using Sketch.  Upon completion, you'll have a good introduction to using Sketch. For an advanced understanding, I recommend enrolling in the full version of the course.  

What kind of App screens will I be duplicating in this course?:

  • Facebook mobile app

  • Basic versions of popular mobile app Icons

  • A really cool looking metallic button

Sketch 3 is an amazing product that's gaining in popularity as the top tool for designing mobile apps due to its very intuitive controls and ease of use. If you’re interested in designing your own mobile apps, this is a great course to get your feet wet.

Hi I’m Arend, a lifelong student and teacher, here to share my knowledge and style of teaching. I’ve been involved in the tech industry for the majority of my career and have spent the last 15 years working as a Business Analyst documenting and designing everything from back-end systems, business and personal websites and mobile applications. My preferred style of teaching is to take a hands-on approach, where I walk you through real-world examples, in order to provide you with a detailed view of the concepts/topics being covered.
