Sketch is an amazing tool for Mac users and it gives you power, flexibility, and speed in a lightweight and easy-to-use package. This great tool, built for modern graphic designers, has some very powerful features like Symbols and Shared Styles that are there to make reusing elements quick and easy. You can easily create complex shapes and take advantage the extensive layer styles.
More and more graphic designers have started to use Sketch, instead of the already popular Photoshop or Illustrator. Why? Because, unlike Photoshop, Sketch has a fully vector-based workflow which makes it easy to create beautiful, high-quality artwork from start to finish. Also, unlike Illustrator, the interface is much easier to use and more intuitive. You could learn how to use it by yourself, or even better, by watching some interesting tutorials online.
Sketch is mostly used by graphic designers for creating user interfaces. It just feels better for UI design than Photoshop. It is optimized for this. The number of clicks that it takes you to perform a task in Photoshop is divided by half in Sketch. That will surely save you a lot of time!
