    Hi Chris. I'm a huge fan of your work.

    Motion and interaction design are on the ascendency, which I believe is in service of making software more understandable & enjoyable to use.

    Given that Sketch aims to be the go-to tool for interface designers, how does the Sketch team think about addressing motion & interaction as integral parts of the interface design process?

      Thanks Sky. Animation and prototyping has definitely entered the consciousness of the modern designer. I mean, they’ve always existed, but it’s definitely the new hotness.

      There’s certainly a load of great apps out there that tackle these things, and whenever a developer of these apps gets in touch with us about integrations via our Plugin system or SketchTool, we see how we can help them because if you can design in Sketch, and then be able to animate it without redrawing or slicing, it’s going to make designers lives easier.
