  • Posted to Here's How I Use Sketch for Print Design, in reply to Shawn Leslie , Oct 26, 2016

    So glad to you found it useful, Shawn! For those of us who prefer making layouts in Sketch, those techniques are really a life saver. :)

    That's true! I found that Flinto's ability to automatically interpolate between connected layers (especially basic shapes) in the Transition Designer, along with 3D rotations and super easy timing/easing tools allowed me to create more stunning animations in 2 day than a motion graphics animator could get through in a week. Sure, it doesn't support multiple keyframes, but you can fake that and get surprisingly far with groups and additional screens.

  • Posted to Pixel Density, Demystified: what every designer should know (Article & Video), Jun 10, 2016

    Hi everyone,

    Designers frequently throw around terms like "3x", "HiDPI", "DIPs" and"Pts" and I felt there needed to be a better visual explanation of what everything means and how pixel density affects us as designers.

    Check out the video and share it with someone who's trying to understand this stuff!

  • Posted to Show DN: Sketch Master - Training Courses for Professionals Learning Sketch, May 26, 2016

    Hi fellow designers! I'm thrilled to have launched Sketch Master, after many many months of developing these courses and the platform. I think that the Sketch community deserves quality training that is focused on real projects and practical workflows. The first 2 courses (beginner and intermediate levels) are now available, and I'm hoping to release more advanced courses in the future. I'd love to hear what you think!

    All mono-spaced fonts look relatively similar. For example, the lowercase i almost always needs serifs to take up enough space. When you analyze letters like "a", "G", "S", "k", "g"... they're unmistakably the same as SF Compact. Definitely different typographic DNA than Roboto.

    I've been digging Operator, the new Hoefler & Co. code font. It's highly legible, although very stylistic. Couldn't be more different than SF. Available in CodePen now.

    It isn't common for any font to do that. It's a nice feature of SF, but I can see the reason for disabling it in the monospaced version because it could be confusing to have colons of various heights in code. In current versions of SF the feature is on by default—there's nothing to turn on.

    From that screenshot it also looks like the monospaced version won't automatically raise the position of a colon between two numbers (used for time), like the current SF fonts do.
