Update: this position is no longer available (July 18, 2019).
Join the UX design team at Nutrien to work on challenging and fulfilling work that can truly make an impact on the future of agriculture. We have an open position in our office at the Research Park in Champaign, IL.
Below is a clip by Nutrien featuring a grower in California. Our design team is focused on helping growers like her make better day-to-day decisions and long-term sustainable choices. I couldn't be more proud of the work our team does, and I look forward to you joining the team.
Update: Sketch officially teased the version 56 features in a blog post.
The creator of Sketch presented at Layers by showcasing new features coming in Sketch 56. The atmosphere in the theater was giddy. The designers at the conference were ecstatic to see their favorite design tool make massive leaps forward. Here's a sneak peek of what's coming from photos/videos from audience members.
This illustration beautifully captures the power of the new features coming soon, without going into detail too much. Really there's 4 major new features, since Sketch Cloud is getting totally overhauled for versioning, shareable prototypes.
Instead of using a clunky plugin, Sketch can now do simple (and complex) resizing for components. All you need to do is specify if it's a horizontal or vertical stack, and Sketch intuits the rest. Simple. I think designers have wanted an elegant solution to this problem for years, maybe as long as graphical user interfaces have been around.
After seeing how complex real design systems have become, Sketch has entirely rethought how you manage libraries.
There's now a components sidebar for easy dragging and dropping components from a library into your document. It also lets you categorize your symbols with drag-and-drop rather than having really long and complex symbol names.
The new Distribution (and Tidy) features let you easily adjust the spacing between lots of objects at the same time. It also lets you do cool Pinterest-like layouts — it doesn't have to be a strict grid.
Another example of Smart Distribute, where you can quickly adjust the spacing for the whole layout in a matter of seconds.
Sketch Cloud for Teams allows you to share prototypes internally and externally. It has built in version controls with in-line comments. It's really powerful, and makes Sketch Prototypes nearly as flexible as InVision prototypes.
Altogether, Sketch 56 is a huge update. Additions like versioning and collaborating in Sketch Cloud are huge for the overall workflow of design. Public links for Sketch prototypes means you can easily get stakeholder feedback. A new way to manage components, auto-resizing for buttons and complex components… it's all here and it's super cool.
As someone who uses Sketch day-in-and-day-out, it's clear the Sketch team is firing on all cylinders and pushing the ball forward, which is essential since competition from InVision, Adobe XD, Figma, and other ramp up their products.
