Best design tools to use with Sketch
After finishing your designs in Sketch, how to handoff them to your team? Here is a good plugin for you.
Mockplus iDoc is a powerful product design collaboration tool for designers and engineers. It goes beyond the design workflow and helps teams with the design hand-off. It greatly facilitates the handoff by taking designs from Sketch, PS, Adobe XD and exporting them into a format thatcan easily generate code snippets, specs, assets, style guides, interactive prototypes, etc. In Mockplus iDoc, designers can:
- Export designs in one click from Sketch, Adobe XD and Adobe Photoshop
- Handoff designs with accurate specs, assets, code snippets automatically
- Get notified of up-to-date comments and feedback promptly, import and update your existing design again if there are any changes
- Collect and organize style guides automatically to build your team's design repository
You can use Finto to create small interactions, and animations, all the way through to building comprehensive flows for multi-screen apps. It follows a similar aesthetic to Sketch, and even offers up similar tools to what you can find in the aforementioned tool. Heck it even has some of the same keyboard shortcuts. It’s as though they were cast from the same mould, and that’s always a bonus.
Group Resizing is a native Sketch feature that enables you to change the way objects react when your artboards or parent groups are resized. Auto Layout, built by AnimaApp, takes this functionality a little further.
Where Group Resizing lets you create fluid elements and pin objects to a corner (think: :fixed positioning in CSS), Auto Layout also lets you offset elements by a certain number of pixels, define minimum and maximum dimensions for elements (think: min-: and max-: in CSS) and do everything that Group Resizing allows you to do but with a much less confusing UI.
While Sketch offers its own solution for optimising SVG files, there is no range of options for compressing JPG and PNG images. Since ImageOptim has been offering a solid service for a number of years, it makes sense that it would bring this functionality to Sketch.
Any designer who cares about loading times and image optimisation (which should be all designers) should add ImageOptim to their toolbox. Note that as well as the plugin, you'll need the core ImageOptim app (free) installed on your macOS system, and you still need to mark layers as exportable in Sketch (navigate to ‘Export and Optimise All Assets’ to begin).
