Essential Plugins for Sketch


Last month, I wrote about a Photo Editing Program called Sketch. These are the the best plugins you need to know ASAP when starting out with Sketch.

Must-have Starter Plugins

  • Sketch Toolbox

Helps you download any plugin(all of the below)

  • Dynamic Symbol Button

Great for Wireframes or process oriented UIs

Create one button style and insert it anywhere in your layout with any length of text

  • Icon Font (Favorite Plugin)

Helps you insert line-icons, font-awesome, and a few other icon fonts from within the “Text” tool.


– Easy to use

– You can change colors without have to change vectors, or screenshot Cons:– Tedious to insert multiple icons
