Sketch is a powerful application created specifically for design. In this video I walk you through some of the features Sketch has to offer and why it is the preferred software to use for designers. As a demonstration I create a fictitious website landing page that has an adventure/lifestyle look and feel.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS CHANNEL:
Every week, I will publish meaningful & concise content that provides insight into the field of graphic design, web design, illustration, branding, app design, & other creative areas I find important in my field as a commercial artist. This media includes software tutorials, lifestyle vlogs, and other useful videos to help and inspire anyone looking to improve their skills as a creative badass and take their creativity to new heights.
Hey there, I’m Cody. A craft-beer drinking Designer & Art Director living in San Diego, Ca.
I’ve been designing professionally for the last 6 years and have learned quite a bit along the way. Throughout my career as a creative I’ve had the pleasure of designing for a number of incredible brands & creative agencies.
From working with a variety of clients and organizations, my style can been seen as eclectic and constantly evolving, much like a chameleon. In the world of commercial arts I’ve had to get out of my comfort zone and adapt to the brands and tasks at hand. I like to think that my personal aesthetic is contemporary and minimal combing modern techniques with classic design elements.
Some of the skills I’ve acquired throughout my journey as a creative:
Art & Creative Direction
Branding & Identity Design
Web Site Design (optimized for mobile & tablet)
Typography & Lettering
Video Production & Editing
