Learn Sketch in 30 minutes. I designed this course for anyone who wants to get the most in the shortest possible time. I squeezed all the essentials of using Sketch in 30 minutes. You don't need to spent several hours studying Sketch in order to be able to design great looking mobile apps and websites. I can guarantee that you will be designing your own work in 30 minutes after taking this course. Take this short yet effective course and you're ready to start creating your own vector graphics today.

What will you get?

  • Learn how to use the latest version of Sketch 3.8
  • Interesting tips for saving time while designing your work
  • All essential tools explained
  • Tips for efficient exporting of your work
  • Website with free resources to help you get started
  • Updates and new lessons with additional content will be added regularly

What is Sketch?

Sketch is a vector-based editor. It's intuitive and very easy to use. It's cheaper than Illustrator and definitely better than Photoshop because it will allow you to resize your work infinitely, export it in many different formats without loosing quality. It's the best tool for creating great designs for Android devices, iPhone and iPad, even Windows phone. Sketch is a strong tool for web design. It saves a lot of repetitive work with Symbols, one of many great tools.

Sketch is very popular. There's a vibrant community and constant flow of new resources available for free.

You don't need to buy expensive books and studying for hours. Sketch is so easy to use, that all you need to start is 15 minutes. This course will give you twice that time, which is more than enough.

I plan to constantly add new content, which will be available for free for all enrolled students.

I will add challenges and projects so you can test your knowledge and improve your skill.

The first project is about creating your own set of 20 icons for iOS devices. This can be done thanks to the plugin I will show you inside the course in just a minute! That's right. Imagine creating these 20 different resolution icons in Photoshop. That would be a real nightmare!

In Sketch you will have this work done in under a minute and the most time-consuming part of this will be designing your icon. The rest is as fast as hitting one button.


What are the requirements?

  • You need a Mac computer, Sketch is not available for Windows or Linux
  • Latest trial version of Sketch, currently 3.8
  • 30 minutes of your time

What are you going to learn?

  • How to use the latest Sketch from scratch
  • How to export your work efficiently and almost unbelievably fast
  • How to use all the essential tools


Who is this course for?

  • Photoshop, Fireworks and Illustrator users looking for something better, faster and easier to use
  • Anyone willing to learn something new without any prior knowledge in design

7 Rules For Success Of Online Instructors

I started my IT career as a Pascal programming language student in 1994. Later I discovered the potential of the web and co-founded WEBXP company with my colleague, where we offered websites and web applications for local businesses.

In 2000 I started working for a German-based company Caatoosee, where I was the part of a team creating the top of the line web shop for than famous Breuninger Mode & Beauty online kaufen. I focused primarily on DHTML, Javascript, CSS for static websites and PHP with MySQL for dynamic apps.

At that time I also started my very own LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) project and designed, developed and published one of the first so-called discussion servers, that were very popular in my country years before the Facebook became the worldwide success.

In 2008 when iPhone SDK was introduced, I moved to mobile apps world and soon published my first verb dictionary for iPhone which you can still find on the App Store.

In 2015 I founded BOHEMIAPPS which evolved from simple iOS apps platform to online education program.

I love to learn new things of all sorts and I love to share more knowledge with others even more. I believe the student is only as successful in understanding the topic as the teacher is in explaining it properly. In other words - there's no bad student, only the bad instructor.

My mission is to share what I know and present it in the best possible way I can provide, so my students can benefit from it. I respect their time and I always try to do my best to bring them a quality education.

In 2016 I decided to push my mission even further with SMART PROFIT SCHOOL. I believe that everyone can teach. SMART PROFIT SCHOOL will help you start your own online teaching career. I will teach you how to teach!
