Should I buy a Mac and switch to Sketch?

    Hey Ettore,

    Making that kind of a switch is a huge financial and time commitment. You'll be learning a new program, you'll be learning a new operating system, you'll be learning a new workflow.

    But I can 100% guarantee that it'll make your life easier. We've have a number of designers and developers make the switch and Sketch is essential. I made the switch about four years ago—after one day on Sketch, I've never done interface design in Photoshop/Illustrator again. As others have said, it was made for interface design from day one so it is demonstrably better.

    To make your life better, these are the three links I send to my designers or my students when they are ready to start learning Sketch. Best of luck!

    1) Great intro video to just show off how it is laid out and some core features

    2) easy tutorial that will grow familiarity

    3) Become an immediate power user
