This course has been updated in June 2020 in all units, lessons, and exercises, to adapt to the latest version of Sketch.

With the birth of new ways to consume content, new ways of designing it have also emerged. Sketch is an app for Mac which enables an easier design process for app interfaces or websites and is one of the most used tools to carry out this type of project around the globe.
