1. Introduction: Hey, welcome. Before we get started, I want to give you an overview of who I am, what this class is gonna be about and what you should expect for your final project. My name is Alexandra Moran. I'm a visual designer for Red Shift, a digital design agency here in San Francisco. As a studio, we've recently switched over to sketch full times. Over the last several months, I've really gotten to know with programs capable of and some super awesome keyboard shortcuts to use it efficiently. So in this class, what I want to do is share everything that I've learned so far with you guys. And to do that, we're going to make a user profile screen of an imaginary app. I'll provide the wire frame what that looks like. And then you guys are gonna fill in the design and content based around a celebrity of your choice. This class is about more than your final design. Now I really want you guys to make projects that you're a proud of and that are awesome. But more importantly than that, I want you to come back to sketch with confidence and with excitement, because his classes focused more around sketch fundamentals than design fundamentals. You might want to have some sort of design, training or background or experience with the adobe creative suite, or was sketch itself before you get started. Either way, I am super excited to see you guys in class, and I'm looking forward to getting started. Been lesson one. 2. Project: Design a User Profile for Your Favorite Celebrity : Okay, so let me give you some more information about the project. The first step is choosing the celebrity you'd like to design for. For my example, I picked Alan too generous because I think she is hilarious and an awesome lady. So ones you choose who your muse will be. Then you can start gathering some visual inspiration about them. Pictures of them pictures. Except they like pictures of things they've done on gun. A little bit of information about the celebrity. Then using the wire cream that all provide is a template will make our designs. And by doing that will go through the basics of sketch menus, lots of keyboard shortcuts and some best practices about layer management and how to build your file. 3. Downloading Sketch: so the absolute first step of this project will be downloading sketch. If you don't already have it, you can go to sketch up dot com and buy it for $99 or download a free trial. 4. Navigating Sketch: Okay, so we're gonna start by opening up sketch. Uh, you can see that it services your recent documents, but we'll start by opening up in new documents, and this is what it looks like inside. So you can see on the left hand side that this is where your layers palette low exists. There's also pages which I'll explain a little bit later. And on the right hand side, you have your inspector. This little section here is something I just installed recently, which is called a craft, which is something that envisioned put out to integrate with sketch. So you guys won't see that we're not going to dive into that during this class. But I just want to let you know what it waas. This big, beautiful area in the middle is your chemise. That's where we'll be doing all of our work and where your art boards will show up. When we start adding those up here, you have some quick shortcuts to commonly used tools. You can edit this once you get comfortable and you can have the things that you want in there and take out some of the stuff that you don't use as much. But of course, everything is successful appear in your file menu. A couple of the things we'll be looking at is the vector tool and some shape tools. You can see that the keyboard shortcuts are listed out on the right hand side of some of the items here. Any that don't have, um, unless it out you can actually add in your own, but those air super handy for getting comfortable with all of the tools. There's also this plug INS section, which we won't get into in this class either. But plug ins are an amazing way to bolster sketch to do even more awesome things that you want it to dio Um, so hopefully, once you're comfortable in sketch, you'll come back to it and learn a little bit more about plug ins. Okay, so what we're going to start by doing is adding an art board. We can go to insert art board. You can see that my and cursor has turned into crosses here, and I can click drag to create any size gambles that I want and my art board appears. You can see that in my layers palette. It's listed. It and it's also given me the opportunity to immediately name my our board, which is fantastic and something you should absolutely get into the habit of doing so. I'm gonna call this one example one another. Everything about adding your art boards is that if you just hit a the shortcut, you will see in the inspector that there's a ton of pre populated sizes. Um, so we can say, OK, we're making a letter page or we're making a mock for an iPhone six. We're actually gonna be using the iPhone five size. So I'm gonna click that one, Uh, and then you already have it ready to go exactly. Dis back. Another awesome thing when you're working is if you have a shape and I'm just gonna add one here quickly and you hit a again. You can choose a round selection and it will provide you with an arm port. That's the exact size of the item or items that you chose. Okay, so that is the quick gist of what sketch looks like under that 5. Setting Up Your File: Okay, so now we're gonna really set up for a file to get working. I'm going to go over here into my pages, and I'm gonna right click and delete this page because they don't actually need it. And I want to keep my final tiki because I used the predetermined size to make this art board. It's named with that size, but I'm gonna rename it by hidden command. Are would you can do to any layer folder or art board and instantly rename it, so I'm going to call this one example design. Now, I'm going to save my file because I don't want to lose any of the work that I will be doing . If you are an adobe person, you might be tempted to use the keyboard turkey to save as But that will. Actually, as you can see, we could duplicate copy. So close this delay the copy because they don't actually want it and just hit command. Asked to save, I'm gonna send it to my desktop, and I'm gonna call it example Design. Okay. Awesome. So what I'm gonna do next is open up my mood board that I work done. I mean, running a sketch file. So what I'm gonna do is click drag to select everything. Well, downshift and click. The name of the art board just left that as well. It command C to copy it. Then I'm going to click window up here and choose example design because that's my other open document, and I'm going to add a page and call it mood born. And now, on that page, I'm going to hit command the to paste it in, and I've got all of my documents. Get a zoom out here by using my track pad, but you can zoom in and out by using command plus and command minus as well. So I've got my mood board in here, which is awesome. I can click back and forth to it between the pages palette instead of having to switch back and forth between actual windows. And I'm going to close this so we have it all totally in one vial. So I'm gonna grab my wire frame and this is available to you guys through the class. Resource is I'm going to click, drag it from Finder, switch over to sketch and just drop it right onto the airport. You see that it's twice the size of my art board, and so instead of re sizing it, I'm actually gonna make my our board a little bit bigger so we can work in a bit of higher fidelity. Something that I absolutely love about Sketch is that you conduce do math so you can avoid doing math. Basically, I have my our board selected, and I can go over into the size pellet here, and I can actually write Start to to multiply the with by two so that I don't have to do the calculations in my head, and I could just get very precise measurements in my document. It's really more helpful for a slightly more awkward numbers or if you weren't doing something as simple as a base to multiplication. But it's an excellent future, in my opinion. The other nice thing you can do in the Inspector with math is you can see that the position of my wire frame image is off of the art board. Instead of trying to click drag and get it exactly right, all I can see that sketch is actually even helping me out with the sort of automatic guides . Let's say that wasn't happening. I can go in here and Aiken hit 00 for the X and Y, and it'll automatically sent my image up to be in the top left corner. Um, this is really great. If you are trying to play something and you know you want it to be halfway across a across of your art board or if you always air trying to any things to the top left, you can see that my art board here is shown basically as a folder or a toggle in the layers list. If I hit this little twisty Aiken, see my wire frame, um, image in the list and what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna right click on it, and I'm going to lock the layer we're gonna be doing in. The next lesson is building all of our shapes for this wire frame on top of it. So by having it laughed, it'll stay out of our way and we can do work. Okay, I hope you guys are excited to get in there and start making this and then start making more beautiful. So So during the next lost 6. Collecting Your Content: since we're gonna be focusing this project around your favorite celebrity. There's a couple of things you should get together before you get started on your design so that things run smoothly and you can just hit the ground running. Ah, those are the birthday and birthplace of your celebrity, as well as a profile photo of first post photo and a cover photo. The's can pretty much look like anything, and you can change this content as you want in your own design. But if you want to follow along with the template that I have set up, your profile, photo should just be a standard headshot type image. Your first post photo can really be absolutely anything, and then your cover photo was something like your Facebook cover photo where it's a maybe more like a Linse keep or a pattern or something that's just gonna make that profile. Photo pop 7. Starting Your Design: All right, let's get started with our design. So right now at airports pretty far away, what I can do is hover over the new move it and click to select the whole art born. And then from there I can hit come in to and what that does. That's just a zoom to selection. So anything that I had selected at that point, it would zoom to my visible area. So we're just up nice and close to what we're working with. So we're just gonna block out all of our shapes, basically, And to do that, we can insert shape, rectangle or oval. But I'm gonna use the r and O shortcut so I'm gonna hit our um you can see that my cursor team just crosshairs and you can see that if there's a little rectangle icon So I'm just gonna click drag to drop one of those and then hit Oh, and I get the crosshairs again But a circular oval shape for a little And I'm holding down shift to constrain my proportions for this oval to make it a perfect circle. So here for this profile image, I'm actually going to start with a rectangle. That's the with of my whole art board, because I wanted to be 1/3 of that. And in the inspector pallet over here, I can do a slash for divide and three to divide this into thirds. And then I can copy that with and paste it into the height so that I have a perfect square gonna lock my proportions so that this remains X Claire. And then I can drags over here, um, and sketches helping me with smart guides. But I can also use the align palette at the top of the inspector toe left alone, right in line or center line to the airport. Okay. And then just quickly, I'm gonna block out the rest of the shapes. Now here. Gonna hold on option. And you can see that sketch actually, then shows you the measurement of that objects. Sort of four cardinal directions are, or four sides of the bounding box to the art board. And then, if I hover over another object, it tells me the measurements between the two of them. Really? I'm gonna hold down option here because by holding down option and click dragging and get a duplicate of the shape that I had selected already. So my last shape here, um, actually don't want it to be on top of my layers list. I wanted to be in the back, so I'm gonna hold down control option command down arrow, and that sends it to the bottom of the layers list. I'm gonna move it one layer up above the wire frame, but it's behind all of these other shapes. Can't tell because everything's the same color. So I'm gonna go over here into the inspector again into this Phil section, and I can click this and then that pulls up this color picker. Or you can use the RGB or tap to change it to hue, saturation and brightness. Um, and then I can adjust the color here, so I'm just gonna do something darker so you can see that. Yes, indeed. My to stand in, um, icons are up here. That brings up another thing that I want to talk to you guys about. So if you I haven't noticed already, maybe you can take a look now in your own sketch. When you draw a shape, it probably doesn't look like when I draw shape And that's because there's a setting and sketch called Set to Default, and you can customize what your default styling is. So let's say I want all of mine to automatically have a 11 pixel red border on the inside of all my shapes and we'll say, a bright yellow Phil. I can go peer into edit and then say, set as default. Now, when I draw another oval or rectangle or any other shape, it has that exact stein. So going in and either pulling my wire frame that's available to guys and resource is or set up your own layout and then block out all of the shapes that you need. And we'll get started in the next lesson, setting up some more color. Probably not reds and yellows like this, but getting it's out to look more like what your celebrity design will be. 8. Working with Color: So we're here in my mood board. As you can see, I have owned generous and what I'm gonna do is zoom in here on my color palette and I'm gonna select this square so we know that we have our colors over here in our filles. But what we haven't talked about is this Global colors and documents, colors, business little plus icon here and I can click it Teoh, add the hence code or few off whatever object I have selected. So I'm gonna quickly do that for all of my colors. Here. This is the power that I put together for what I think Ellen's profile should look like. And now, when I switch back to my example and I choose one of my objects, let's choose the but in here I can go in and all those colors are available to me. If I had global colors, which I have for a client project, I'm working on those maintained throughout any file that you have open and your document colors are document specific, so they'll only show up when I have this file. So I'm gonna choose this blue color here, which is gonna be my interactive color and no, with confidence. That is the exact color that I wanted to be the working on a border on to our profile picture here, it's gonna be white, and I want to have it on the outside of my image, but I can't see that the bottom here. So what I'm gonna do quickly is make a rectangle that's the size of the campus. And I'm gonna use the shortcut of control option command Down Arrow. And that's gonna send it to the absolute back of the art board or to the bottom of the layers list. Actually gonna move it up one layer above my wire frame and I'm gonna make it. That's really nice, like gray from my palate. And now you can see my profile pic, and it's border a little bit better, but I want to make it super clear. So I'm gonna and a drop shadow. And to do that, I'm gonna click this, but in here on the rate to add a shadow And I'm going to change the distance that you can see it as I go up here. It's really coming out. Uh, and I'm gonna sit it too. it looks pretty good and won't extend the blur a little bit and actually make it a little bit shorter. So in his little drop shadow to set my profile picture off of the page. So for now, for my hero image, I think what I'd like to do is add in a great aunt. You can see when I click on it. It's selecting the group, something you can do to get around that is hold down option. And you can see when I hover over any of the shapes they get outlined in blue. And that's basically saying that I'm directly selecting an object, even though it's part of a group, so that then when I click, I have that exact layers selected. So I'm gonna go into my fills here, and I don't want to lose this great yet. So I'm gonna add a plus here, and then you can see that it actually defaults to the greedy int selection. What's nice about that is I have this great in here and now I can check it on and off and see the difference of any colors that might be trying or if I just want to make sure that I maintain versions of the design or versions of the colors. We're gonna put that radiant back on and then click into it and select some different colors. So down here you can see that I no longer have my document colors. I have document radiance. And since I want to make my greedy INTs out of my document colors or my brand colors, really just gonna quickly make some shapes up here that I can easily color pick them from my ingredient. Another way to get into your groups is to double click to select an image. So when you go back into this Grady int here and I'm gonna set my alphas on both ends 200% so that I can have full color and then I'm gonna use the I driver to pick this light light purple, and then I'm going to select the other end of my greedy int and color pick again for my blue. So now I have this really nice light pale grading and that's super on brand for Ellen. I'm gonna delete this. So what I'm feeling here is that I'm actually really liking this profile pic style and I want to apply it to my first post. Really, really easy and amazing when you consider that in sketch is select the object that you want and you could go into edit here and say copy, style. Or of course, you drew shortcut of option command. See, and then select the object that you want. Apply that sale to here. I'll use my shortcut holding down command too direct. Select into my group. And then I'm the object of your choice Hit option command V or right click for paced style . And you can see that everything that I had set up for that other object is now in this one the fill the border and the shadow all exactly to spec. So I'm gonna do here is just use the color picker, which is control C to have the wait for my heart placeholder. And now this is starting to come together a little bit stylistically. So finish blocking out some color and playing around with Grady ins and drop shadows. And in the next lesson will block in our type, which is hiding underneath our base layer here. So if I haven't told you guys already to show that you can hover over any layer and click this eyeball to hide or show it. Okay, I will see you guys in the next lesson. 9. Working with Type: All right. So let's add in some text, you can go up to the type menu. Um, for all sorts of ways to edit your text. Once you have it, you can go to insert text. We will, of course, be using our keepers circuit a thi uh, which in desert cursor, And then we can click and type Are celebrity names, Ellen, generous. The default style right now is teeny tiny. I'm gonna hit escape, which will take me out of the text heading format and not lose any of the changes that I made. It saves it here in sketch. And then I'm gonna go over here and you can click on typeface to choose any typeface. I'm gonna stick with proximity of it and I'm gonna change my weight to send me bold and my size I can click into here We'll try 32 on and then I'm gonna click drag just to center this on the page Gonna add my background in a little bit, but change the opacity, so it's a little bit easier to see how I'm working. Um, and then I'm gonna change my color to be one of my document colors. here. I'm gonna duplicate this piece of text just because that is an easy way to go about. It begins in the layers palette that it's naming my layers with the text I have written. I have turned off setting and sketch to make new names for all of my duplicate files. You can do that or not do that. If you want. You just go into sketch preferences renamed Duplicated Layers or check it off. I'm gonna leave mine checked off because if I go into this second text and I hit Enter and I and in my bio about Ellen, which is when I hit escape, you can see that what goes off of the art board is hidden, but I have my bounding box here and the with Rick. Now my text is set to auto, which means that it's just going to keep adding on and on and on as I type. But if they change it to fixed, it's going to make that a specific size. And I can change my with up here. Teoh 100 or I can click and drag to size how I want from auto. You can also click and drag animal automatically switch you to fixed so quickly. I'm just gonna drop in the actual text that I want here for my bio about Ellen. And I'm gonna change some of the color, you know, light in this up a little bit. And I'm gonna set it to regular for some differentiation from my header. Make it a little bit smaller. Maybe that's too small, and we'll center. Okay, now I'm gonna duplicate that as well, but I'm gonna keep the same size, and I'm going to write in the birthplace, which for Ellen is a town in Louisiana, and I'm going to set over here my own linemen to left aligned instead of centered could also justify or write a line. I'm gonna change my with toe auto and just sort of dragged us over here where I want it can also adjust with your arrow keys, and I'm gonna set the color to be my interactive color that I selected before other. So if you could do with text even though I don't need it here now is add underlines for decoration or add a bulleted or numbered lists. Uh, schedule often kind of hides a lot of details in here. So you see a settings button like this don't ignoring. It usually has in good stuff in it. Um that I'm going to duplicate this over here and on in my birth date, which is January 26th for Ellen. And now I'm going to organize this stuff a little bit. Okay, so in my butt and I'm gonna copy this one and paste it. Then I'm going to select both of those and use my alignment palette to get that set up, right? I'm gonna hit command G to group these and then command are again to rename them. I'm gonna call them, but in. And then I'm going to hold down command and click into this to select this piece of text. And I'm just gonna change the color toe white so that you can see it on the button. Here. Also, this back 200 percents or text is a little cleaned up, and then in the next lesson, we're gonna start dropping in some of our photos. And then after that, working on her ANC runs. So I will see you guys next up in those 10. Working with Images: Okay, So I'm gonna start by dropping in the image that I want to use for Ellen's first post. I'm going to use this picture of her, uh, as she is voicing Dori in Finding Nemo. I'm gonna go down here into my post. Uh, if I command click in so that I'm right next post I'm going, Teoh pace it there. You can see that it pastes it right above whichever layer I have selected. So what I'm gonna do next is I'm going to right click on first post this layer below it that I want to attach it to, and I'm gonna select use as mask. Now you can see that the two layers above my mask, as it has been renamed, have these icons that air showing that they're affected by it stops here at post because these items Aaron a group. If I moved my mask out of this group above it, you can see that everything else in my file becomes affected by the mask. So gonna put that down back into my group. You can either drag things into your group or you can hover on top of the folder layer if you do that, it's gonna put the layer you're dropping in at the very top of your group. Um, so I'm going to drag that down to the bottom. Okay, so now I'm gonna go in and basically do the same exact thing for my profile picture for Ellen on Dhere. You can see that I don't have it in a group. I'm gonna paste it anyways. It's not throwing off my whole design right now because they don't have anything above it. But I'm gonna group this and rename it profile picture so that just in case I change anything, it doesn't ruin my design. And I keep my masks contained. So when you use his mask and then I'm gonna select Ellen's picture and layer pallet, and I'm going to hover over the top right corner so I can get a resize well done shift to keep it the same proportion. But I'm also gonna hold down option so that I resize, uh, from a center anchor point instead of from the opposite corner that I've selected. So holding shift an option to get something that looks like that. And now we've got some nice photos is coming together but I think I wanna have a picture for my hero. Images. Well, so I'm gonna go in and grab just a nice stock image that I have collected previously and apply that as a mascots. Well, so I'm gonna make my group raining this hero image. Click into it by hitting. Enter toe, open up a group that's in your layer pallet. And then I'm going to right click on here image uses, mask and resize and realign my image the way we want it. Okay, so our design is coming together, and the last phase that we're going to talk about in terms of design is icons and using the vector tool as well a some shape styling that we haven't discussed yet. So we will see you guys in the next lesson to do that. 11. Icons and Working With the Vector Tool: Okay, so I'm gonna change my background again here to be a little bit transparent, because this is where we want to come up with an icon for the location. I'm gonna make a new circle by using the O shortcut, gonna turn my fill off, and I'm going to make a border with my interactive color. So now that we have the shape, what we can do is hit, enter, And now you can see that we are looking at the anger points of how the shape is bill and we can transform and manipulate them. One of the things that I love about sketch is thes four different point types and their mapped to keep controls So you can choose one for straight two for mirrored three for disconnected or four for asymmetric should, of course, meaning that there is no handles that come off of it. And you're just getting straight. Angles mirrored will keep your length exactly the same on both sides of the anchor point. As well as mirroring the angle which those handles are on disconnected allows you to separately change the angle and length of your handle, and then asymmetric keeps the angle the same, but allows you to have different lance of your handle. So what I'm gonna do for this one is going to hit one to make this street. I'm just gonna make a quick little icon here for a location, going to make another little circle in here and online it. I'm going to use my keyboard shortcut to option command, see, copied the style and base it to this other circle. And then I'm going to make it a little bit bigger here, and that looks pretty good, but I just want to go in and change the shape of this edge. So I'm gonna use gonna hit four to use my asymmetric, and I'm gonna pull this down a little bit. I haven't heard you guys rules yet. We can turn those on by hitting Control are what's different about sketch is that you hover over this access and you're making a line on this access, whereas in adobe would click here and pull out a vertical guide. So to make a vertical guide here at the top and to make a horizontal guide, you are on the left hand side. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna hit, enter and go back into my anchor points here and select this one. I'm gonna set up a guide for where my handle is. So that on this anchor point when I had four to get an asymmetric view, I can pull it down and have it exactly match. And you can see there that it snaps to that guide to help me have the perfect styling. It's a museum out here and just make a group of these two and I'm gonna call them Location Icon and we're gonna make a star. I come for this one so I could do it by hitting V, which is the vector tool very similar to the pencil and draw out the star. But as you can see, moving quickly, it's not very even. So I'm gonna insert an image here, and I'm going to use the star shape that is provided with my cursor changed to the cross years. It could see that I'm just gonna click, drag and make my shape. I still have my style selected from the last icons. I'm going to option command paste and have that in there and then I want to take a look at the inspector palette for a couple of the variables that choke for this tower icon or star shape, but also show up for a lot of other shapes. So I can affect the radius of what my star looks like. And I can adjust here how many points it has do a nice 10 and then I can also hit, enter and go into that shape and adjust any of those anger points as I wish. So Well, this is a pretty radical looking star. I'm gonna control Z to undo those and leave it as it is like that. So going into my square here, I can also adjust my radius and round the corners of my square really nicely and really easily. What I think is also awesome isn't gonna Adam border. So I'm gonna add a drop shadow onto this, and I'm not gonna do sort of a traditional looking one gonna make a solid border so out of that and take my blur down to zero. And what's really cool is that if I adjust my corner radius, it's also adjusting my drop shadow to be perfectly aligned. Okay, so moving down the page. I'm gonna replace this heart placeholder. I have a design already for a night's heart icon that I didn't illustrator. So I'm gonna open that up. And while I can't open up an illustrative file in sketch, what I can do is select the spectre, copy it and then paste it directly into my sketch file, going Teoh for a moment, move it out of this group so that it's not affected by the mask and it's got in a group as page one. So I'm gonna ungroomed pit, and then it has this clip player file. This doesn't always happen. I'm not totally sure how it works between files, but you can also copy and paste vectors without all of this excess stuff happening. But for the moment, let's delete that clip layer, vile. And now we have this ville. I'm gonna reading the layer heart in a hit Enter and I'm able to adjust the anger points, Justus they could, with any vector that I created here in sketch, will resize this and move it over here. Copy the color. Get rid of my placeholder. Drop this into my folder. And now I have a nice likeable heart icon. On my first post, The last couple icons we're gonna weren't get are up here at the top. Uh, what I'm gonna do is use the line tool here to make my hamburger icon. So I've just hit L for the line tool and I click and drag to create my shape. And then I'm gonna make this one a dark color for the moment, and we'll bump up the thickness. And what is a little bit hidden in sketch is thes border properties. You can click on this settings and you can see that I can change the end of my line to be rounded or how the joints might work in any shape or vector. And then I'm going to zoom in here a little bit and I'm gonna hold down, option and drag my line. You can see that sketch is giving me the measurements of the distance between them. Let's go with six. And a nice trick that you can use is command D. You can duplicate the shape that you've made at the exact distance that you've moved it. So if I hold down this middle layer and I use my option key to see my measurements. You can see that it's exactly six in both directions. Now that I've got these three, I'm gonna group them and rename them Hamburger Icon. And that's alerted me over here as I'm looking at it, one that I've spelled it wrong in two. That I've mismanaged my layers a little bit. So maybe you guys are better than me. I, um, constantly organizing and cleaning up my files as diligent as you can try and be In my personal experience, it's always a bit tricky to keep things organized, but having a good system that you can go back. Teoh is the key for me. So I'm just gonna quickly clean up here and groupies and rename them and called them birthdate. Okay, so we're gonna talk about rules a little bit again here. I know I have another icon that I want to make at the other end of my screen here, and I want them to be relatively the same height or at least related. So this object that I have selected, I can put my cursor over here on the ruler and it's maps to the top or bottom of that group . And so I'm gonna click just to create two rules. They're gonna delete my placeholder here. And then I mean hit. Oh, to create a circle and hold on shift. Um, quickly. Just gonna go back over here and copy my style using option command. See? And then option community v here to paste it. And then I'm going to use my line tool, which is l to click and drag the bottom of my little search icon. And I'm gonna paste the style I have selected as well and then group these two and rename them. And now I have a search I got. So if I'm looking at this header group and I want to adjust something about my hamburger, I can I have to sort of hold down command and select an object in it. But this goes too deep. So this is too specific. I don't actually want the line of the hamburger icon. I just wanted the hamburger. I come one of the ways of getting around that is going over here into your inspector pain and checking off this box that says click through one. Selecting it basically makes this group in your layers list just for organization and your layers list, and it's not affecting anything on your on board. So now when I click into it, I can immediately select the hamburger icon without having to hold down the command key and get at what I want quickly and easily while still having the visual organization in my layers list. All right, that's it. I am just gonna do some final cleanup, but my design is pretty much done. Hopefully yours have come along really nicely as well. I am super excited to see all of them. So don't forget to share in the class project, and I will see you guys in the final wrap up. 12. Keyboard Shortcuts: I put together a pdf for you guys.
