Over the past 2 years, Sketch has become the fan favourite when it comes to UI design on Mac. However, Android designers weren’t getting the same kind of attention as iOS designers. This is now starting to change with some support in the app itself, some coming from Google, and with more and more Android designers sharing their work online.
Obviously many resources are universal. Many plugins will be useful across all platforms and a lot of the knowledge can be transferred over.
But then there are specifics of Android design. Screen densities, vector drawables, common patterns and layouts. With Google’s introduction of Material Design designers need to step up their game for apps to stay relevant and fit in.
I would hardly call myself a designer. But even I fire up Sketch every now and then for a quick UI mockup or a simple icon. This post gathers my favourite Sketch resources for Android UI designers.
