I recently came across a tool called "Sketch", which is great for designing apps and other responsive layouts, and has great resources as well. For now, it's only available for Mac though. What would be a valid alternative on Windows?
Welcome to Graphic Design Stack Exchange
Graphic Design Stack Exchange is a question and answer for Graphic Design professionals, students, and enthusiasts. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about graphic design.
We're a little bit different from other sites. Here's how:
Ask questions, get answers, no distractions
This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.
Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.
The best answers show up first so that they are always easy to find.
The person who asked can mark one answer as "accepted".
Accepting doesn't mean it's the best answer, it just means that it worked for the person who asked.
Alternative for Sketch on Windows?
You could try Macaw it's for both windows and Macintosh. It also has a feature to generate mark-up from your designs so you can do responsive design very easily.
I'm not a Sketch user.... but if I was bound to Windows, which I'm not, I'd definitely be looking at Xara, which is Windows-only.
Get answers to practical, detailed questions
Focus on questions about an actual problem you have faced. Include details about what you have tried and exactly what you are trying to do.
- Graphic arts theory and history;
- Layout, printing and typography;
- Color and composition;
- The look & feel aspect of webdesign;
- Illustration and image manipulation.
Not all questions work well in our format. Avoid questions that are primarily opinion-based, or that are likely to generate discussion rather than answers.
Questions that need improvement may be closed until someone fixes them.
Don't ask about...
- Brainstorming or idea gathering;
- Application troubleshooting or technical support;
- Video editing;
- Website architecture and development.
