Session Title: Bring More To The Design Meeting; Sketch 3 For Android Developers
Session Description: Everyone knows the feeling of trying to communicate their design idea with words and rough whiteboard drawings to their team, just to realize that no one really gets it. What if you could quickly prototype high quality mock screens? You’d be more likely to receive buy in from your product team, more likely to find flaws in your idea before the design meeting and above all, you’d augment the design conversations which will undoubtedly increase the quality of the end product. In this talk you will learn how to create such prototypes in Sketch 3. Sketch 3 is a “professional digital design [tool] for Mac” that is sweeping the industry. You will learn how to navigate Sketch, create storyboards, import a material template, design a few screens and export assets; everything you will need to make an impact on the design conversations in your work.
