Learn Sketch in 30 minutes. I designed this course for anyone who wants to get the most in the shortest possible time. I squeezed all the essentials of using Sketch in 30 minutes. You don't need to spend several hours studying Sketch in order to be able to design great looking mobile apps and websites. I can guarantee that you will be designing your own work in 30 minutes after taking this course. Take this short yet effective course and you're ready to start creating your own vector graphics today.

What will you get?

  • Learn how to use the latest version of Sketch 3.8
  • Interesting tips for saving time while designing your work
  • All essential tools explained
  • Tips for efficient exporting of your work
  • Website with free resources to help you get started

What is Sketch?

Sketch is a vector-based editor. It's intuitive and very easy to use. It's cheaper than Illustrator and definitely better than Photoshop because it will allow you to resize your work infinitely, export it in many different formats without loosing quality. It's the best tool for creating great designs for Android devices, iPhone and iPad, even Windows phone. Sketch is a strong tool for web design. It saves a lot of repetitive work with Symbols, one of many great tools.

Sketch is very popular. There's a vibrant community and constant flow of new resources available for free.

You don't need to buy expensive books and studying for hours. Sketch is so easy to use, that all you need to start is 15 minutes. This course will give you twice that time, which is more than enough.

I plan to constantly add new content, which will be available for free for all enrolled students.

I will add challenges and projects so you can test your knowledge and improve your skill.

First project is about creating your own set of 20 icons for iOS devices. This can be done thanks to the plugin I will show you inside the course in just a minute! That's right. Imagine creating these 20 different resolution icons in Photoshop. That would be a real nightmare!

In Sketch you will have this work done in under a minute and the most time-consuming part of this will be designing your icon. The rest is as fast as hitting one button.

What are the requirements?

  • You need a Mac computer, Sketch is not available for Windows or Linux
  • Latest trial version of Sketch, currently 3.8
  • 30 minutes of your time

What are you going to learn?

  • How to use the latest Sketch from scratch
  • How to export your work efficiently and almost unbelievably fast
  • How to use all the essential tools

Who is this course for?

  • Photoshop, Fireworks and Illustrator users looking for something better, faster and easier to use
  • Anyone willing to learn something new without any prior knowledge in design
Who is the target audience?
  • This course is perfect for current users of Photoshop and Illustrator
  • This course is great for anyone seeking for new skills in IT and design
  • This course is not suitable for experienced Sketch users

Hi, my name is Jan. I am Evernote Certified Consultant and the founder of THE SYSTEM2. I run online consulting business at ZAVREL CONSULTING where I explain my methodology for a life of happiness and fulfillment which I call THE FULL CIRCLE

I started my IT career as a Pascal programming language student in 1994. Later I discovered the potential of the web and co-founded WEBXP company, where I created websites and web applications for local businesses. 

In 2000, I started working for a German-based company Caatoosee, where I was the part of a team creating the top of the line web shop for than famous Breuninger Mode & Beauty online kaufen.At that time I also started my very own LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) project and designed, developed and published one of the first so-called discussion servers, that were very popular in my country years before the Facebook became the worldwide success. After 16 years, I am working on its comeback!

In 2008, when iPhone SDK was introduced, I moved to mobile apps world and soon published my first verb dictionary for iPhone which you can still find on the App Store. 

In 2015, I founded BOHEMIAPPS which evolved from simple iPhone app project to creativity platform focused on iOS and web development. 

In 2016, I decided to push my mission even further with SMART PROFIT SCHOOL. I believe that everyone can teach and SMART PROFIT SCHOOL is about helping newcomers start their own online teaching career. I also published my first book in 2016, THE DIGITAL INSTRUCTOR

In 2017 I focused primarily on productivity, became Evernote Certified Consultant, and published my second book, THE SYSTEM2.
