Sketch, Photoshop or Illustrator



hello! I just enrolled in Design101 with Designlab. They ask you to pick a tool to complete your projects with. I know photoshop is pretty standard but more and more people are using Sketch. I will probably need to familiarize myself with both/all of them later down the line or as needed but any suggestions for me, someone who is a complete design novice?


  • Sketch: Geared for designing Interfaces
  • Illustrator: Geared for heavy lifting vector design
  • Photoshop: Geared for photo manipulation

I prefer sketch. because easy to learn, simple, competing community support and the right tool for the right job.
