    Why is Sketch so awesome? What I mean is, how'd you guys manage to get the attention of almost the ENTIRE design community?! Dayyym! (No, seriously, how'd you guys do it? What were the initial responses to Sketch vs. Photoshop?)

      Good question! Don't want to answer for Chris, but maybe the key is something as simple as: make something great that is focused and works well, charge a fair price, and people will find out and tell other people? ;)

      Nathan’s right. Do great work and people will notice. We’ve yet to officially advertise Sketch, our fantastic community have spread the work for us through Twitter, blog posts, or good ol’ word-of-mouth.

      Initially, people were thrown off that Sketch didn’t support PSDs, or does the X, Y and Z that Photoshop did, but we often hear that when people use Sketch, there’s no turning back.
