Do you ever find yourself doing things over and over again? Do you have so many Sketch plugins that you don’t know what to do with them?
Time is the most valuable resource you have at the moment, so stop wasting it on redundant tasks
In this guide you'll learn about best practices for working on a website or a mobile app – from setting up artboards and grids, all the way to prototyping and handing the assets off to a developer.
Content is structured into five chapters
In the first chapter, you'll learn about Sketch's interface, useful tricks and most valuable keyboard shortcuts.

In the fourth chapter, we're going to explore different ways of how you can prototype designs and validate them with real users.
