Instructor Details

Joseph Angelo Todaro

My education, career, and even personal life have been molded by one simple principle; well designed information resonates with people and can change lives. I have a passion for making information resonate. It all starts with how people think. With how humans work. As humans we have learned how to read and write and while that is incredible, we are also already hard-wired to do some things a bit more "automatically". We are animals – designed to see things things as a whole. To start with a big picture and build understanding as we break it down. To learn from the visual. The spacial. The tangible. Information can be all of these things. The difference is design. I am a designer who uses the art, science, and psychology of design to nurture effective communication and facilitate enjoyable experiences. Through over 10,000 hours of one-to-one teaching for one of the largest software companies in the world and over a decade of exploring the visual arts, I have learned to make information work for people. "People ignore design that ignores people." - Frank Chimero

Great course - however, I would have liked to see more on how you set up the libraries as there was a leap between sections where I couldn't see how you'd built all the components 'properly'.
I'm left none the wiser on this particular point but overall the quality is absolutely outstanding as a primer!

By Justyna on 9/17/2020

Because the tutor is sharing his experience in Sketch compared to other graphic design editors. This helps a lot to understand the mechanisms of some features for those who are familiar with for rg. Adobe Illustrator. This is the value!

By Giada Zerbo on 7/13/2020

Amazing course, especially for someone who needs to learn some extra tricks and tips to master this great tool! Joseph Angelo Todaro is probably the best (online) teacher I have had on Udemy. Not only he is great at explaining things in an engaging way, he is a great speaker and I could listen to him for hours.
Only negative note: I would change the title and call it something like: "Sketch from A to Z: Master hidden design tricks" as it doesn't necessarily teach you how to create an app from start to finish if that's your goal! However, this course does teach you almost everything you need to know to work on a real project.

I really enjoyed this course. I have learnt and gained so much on how to use Sketch the professional way. Thank you!

By Pavel Bhattacharjee on 10/3/2020

I was expecting some more content on the prototyping and the link tool. There is none at the present course module. Request you to update the course and add some section on the link tool.

By Sua Yoo on 10/10/2020

It was a little bit fast for me to follow but overall was ok. I wish there were more class projects to practice the toola good class to start for beginners.

By Roland Gaidzik on 8/10/2020

Ja der Kurs passt gut zu mir, da ich ein Anfnger in Designtools bin aber PC Erfahrung haben. Es knnte fr non Natives etwas langsamer gesprochen werden.

By David Vargas on 10/14/2020

Great course for getting started in Sketch and UI design. I missed some things that are still essential, such as prototyping (the Sketch native method is not covered, but there is one tiny extra lesson about inVision prototyping) or how to create "scrollable" artboards, which includes resizing and positioning constraints. However, the course will get you started and any student that completes it can surely continue learning autonomously.
In summary: slightly improvable, but VERY recommended for Sketch beginners!

By Zakaria AlRaddadi on 7/18/2020

Amazing the course but your talk very fast then you give us information not for pure beginner because your explain not deeply but very good thank you bro ...

By Leslie Williams on 7/2/2020

I definitely feel a lot more comfortable using Sketch now thanks to this course! Joseph does a great job explaining concepts, making it easy to learn. You get to see how one may create an app as well, which was beneficial for someone new to this industry like myself. Joseph takes you from a blank canvas to a beautiful and well organized design. I feel that much learned in this course is essential for success and efficiency with this software!

By Ravi Kanth Jami on 9/6/2020

The content is well organized and planned. However I would like to see more artworks (rather than just 3) covered as part of the course to get wide variety of different elements in Sketch.

By Levi Miller on 9/26/2020

Course is super organized and the instructor is clear, concise and articulate. I started knowing nothing about Sketch app and feel like I can actually open it up and do some basic tasks I need to do.
