Sketch Basics: Design a User Profile for Your Favorite Celebrity

Feb 2nd, 2016

My intro video! Honestly I'm quite relieved it is done for now! I had a lot of trouble saying what I wanted to say and sounding natural. The lighting quality isn't as good as I liked but this was my second take at the recording and I think the message is better than the first attempt. (First try here:

Hi everyone!

This is my first attempt at teaching a Skillshare class, but I've participated in several and I love this platform! I am a graphic designer by day and I would like to share what I've learned about Sketch. Currently I am working on mobile apps so I thought I would do an introduction to Sketch with my project being creating a user profile for a mobile app. I'm not sure if what I have in mind right now is too complex for the project, would love feedback! 


In this [45] minute class I'll teach you the fundamentals of Sketch 3, a design app for Mac, and get you comfortable with the basics of the program. You'll practice by designing a user profile screen for your favorite celebrity. This class is great for designers switching over from Adobe, those interested in mobile app design, and anyone curious about Sketch! 



Ready to jump into Sketch? Your assignment is to follow a basic template for a user profile screen of a mobile app, and customize it for your favorite celebrity!


Update your project as it develops. These are the basics milestones you should share, but feel free to share additional steps especially if you have questions.

1. Your celebrity's info 

2. Moodboard

3. Basic design

4. Final design
