Build prototypes
Share them anywhere

Let your big ideas speak for themselves. Prototype with Sketch and bring your concepts to life.

No need for tools like


Prototype at the
speed of thought

When you can share your work and get feedback fast, you can iterate, improve and build better things. That’s why we made our prototyping tools with speed in mind.

  • Build user journeys in seconds

    Connect screens, Artboards and UI elements with animated interactions in just a few clicks.

  • Build elements once (and for all)

    Use and re-use common UI elements (and their interactions) across your prototypes. Avoid covering old ground and save even more time.

  • Movement without friction

    Simulate scrolling content in no time. Extend a standard Artboard size, pin elements as headers and footers – that’s it.

Prototype without the learning curve

With feature-packed tools and a low barrier to entry, you can make magic from day one – all without touching a line of code.

section media
  • A/B testing as easy as ABC

    With multiple start-points in the same document, you can present your testers with multiple flows from one place. Give all your great ideas the opportunity to shine.

  • Test your ideas in true-to-life settings

    Context is important for communicating clearly. Test your prototypes in the Mac app, in your web browser or on our iPhone app. See them in situ instantly.

  • Authentic interactions with Hotspots

    Use Hotspots to make entire areas clickable, rather than layers or single elements. Create realistic tap targets to make your mobile app prototype feel like the real thing.

Prototype beyond basics

Sometimes a prototype requires more sophisticated layers and interactions, from alerts to input screens, menus and popovers – we’ve got that covered too.

  • Create Overlays New

    Set any Artboard as an Overlay and link to it from anywhere in your prototype for richer and more interactive results. You can even apply universal or one-off positioning – background styling, too.


    Create richer prototypes with Overlays

    • Overlays come in all shapes and sizes — from iOS-style share sheets, to interaction-blocking modals that demand attention.

    • Once you’ve defined an Artboard as an Overlay, Sketch will remember that for every instance. And the app will remember the options you set — such as positioning, background styling, and interactions — so you don’t have to set them up again for every interaction.

    • Of course, to make every interaction with your Overlay unique and realistic, you can override your global settings in each individual instance with a powerful set of options.

    • You can set the position of an Overlay relative to the screen it appears on or the layer that links to it. For consistency and precision, you can set these options either right on the Canvas or using Inspector.

    • When positioning your Overlay, you can choose from nine anchor points — and then add an offset, if needed. For example, you could anchor an Overlay to the right of the screen, then add a 20px offset to create a margin.

    • Want to stack Overlays — like warning messaging on top of context menus? No problem — it works exactly as you’d expect. Plus, you choose whether closing one Overlay will close them all, or just the active one.

    You can read more about Overlays in our blog post and our documentation.
  • Apply unique interactions

    Define transitions to make things appear, slide up, or fade in to fit your plans. You can even speed up your process by creating reusable elements with prototyping interactions built in.

  • Dedicated Prototyping UI

    Switch between the Design and Prototype tabs in the Inspector to get the right setup for your workflow — and the right tools at your fingertips.

Prototype without plugins

We get it, costs matter and time is valuable. With Sketch, you can keep your workflow simple without paying for extra tools. Make it, make it move and make it happen, all from one platform.

section media
  • No extra costs

    No extra apps, no extra payments – you can say goodbye to your InVision subscription.

  • Share directly, test anywhere

    Instantly generate a link to your prototypes, share them by email or paste them into other tools, like Notion, to embed them – ready for testing in app and browser.

  • Exchange feedback, fast

    There’s no limit on how many guests you can invite to test your prototypes – for free! If somebody new needs eyes on your project, their insight is only an invitation away.
