A well-documented design system can play a huge part in the success of any major project. And not having to set up every icon and symbole to save time can be a huge help. As my design ability grows so does my ability with Sketch. Saving time from setting up a document and organizing it can lead to more time to be creative. This is my document to help save time and incorporate my design progression.
There are hundreds of Sketch plugins, and more released every day. These plugins are the ones I use for boosting my productivity, speed, organization and creativity.
|1||Midnight - Dark Theme||Applies a dark theme to sketch and helps with organization|
|2||Rename It||for organization, rename layers and artboards in batches|
|3||Runner||helps you to get around Sketch quicker|
|4||Spellcheck||A basic spellchecker that checks all layers on a page|
|5||Stark||ensure your design is accessible and high contrast|
|6||Symbol-Instance-Renamer||rename symbol instances to the name of their master|
|7||Symbol-Organizer||Organize your symbols page into groupings by symbol names|
A growing trend in a designers portfolio is using social media to display and present work. To that end I've moved away from maintaining my own portfolio website in favor of using Instagram, Dribble and Behance.
