I’ve been using Sketch 2 from Bohemian Coding off and on for a couple months now. I actually messed around with the app right after the major version 2 release and then didn’t use it for a while. I’ve been doing some actual UI work with it lately and have really enjoyed it. I wanted to further my skills with the app and see just how other people were using the software and I’ve had a tough time finding the information I was looking for.
So I got a little pissed and decided to halt what I was doing and compile a list for the betterment of the Internet (always a super idea, right?). I scoured around the Web and called on some Twitter pals and here is what I’ve come up with so far.
I’m intending this to be a running list of resources and cool stuff Sketch related. I’ll attempt to maintain it until it gets out of control. Drop me a line if you find anything that I missed and I’ll add it to the list.
There are all sorts of these template type items available for Photoshop, Illustrator and even Fireworks and we’re now starting to see more and more available for Sketch. These little gems are a great way to learn some tips and tricks about the app. It’s so helpful to actually see how people are making the things they are making.

Here you’ll find a wide variety of stuff written about Sketch. Various reviews and other articles in that vein. Keep in mind the dates associated with these articles as the developers of Sketch release fixes and updates quite fast. What may be a limitation one day may be erased the next.
7 Days with Sketch - May 8th, 2012
This one is a bit old, right after the release of Sketch 2. Things have changed and bugs have been fixed, updates have been made, etc. But still a good read.
Sketch 2: A Worthy Photoshop Competitor? - May 02, 2012
A good take from an experienced designer about some time spent with Sketch. What is good about it and what are some of it’s current shortcomings.
Sketch 2: A Simple, Powerful, Vector Graphics App - May 23, 2012
This is a review I wrote actually for Mac.Appstorm a while back. Again, this is a very early version. This version may have even been a pre-release now that I think of it.

Cool review done by Sacha Greif. Covers some very specific aspects of the application.
Sketch helps you go from design to CSS - March 20, 2012
A pretty brief news post about Sketch but hints to some big things ahead.
Pretty obvious I suppose, but these are a list of tutorials showing you how to use Sketch. The Adobe world is flooded with this type of content and from my experience tutorials with Sketch are a little tricky to find as of now. That should be getting better as the days go on. Maybe I’ll even do a few here myself.
Made with Sketch:
Here are some things that I’ve found were made using Sketch. At least this is what the designers say…and I guess we can take their word for it. I just wandered Dribbble for these so I’m sure there are lots of others out there. As you would imagine the Sketch tag has a rather powerful, quite different meaning. Let me know if you’re aware of any others and I’ll add them to the list.
