Sketch integrates WeTransfer file-sharing app in its digital design toolkit

WeTransfer / Sketch integration makes it easy to share your large design-files quickly & effortlessly

July, 2018 -- Today, WeTransfer and Sketch announced the integration of a seamless file-sharing plugin in Sketch. The two Dutch companies’ collaboration allows users to effortlessly share large files in and out of the app.

Sketch is one of the most popular design toolkits available today, aiming to help you create your best work — from your earliest ideas, through to the final artwork. The world-renowned 3D design toolkit is one of the most disruptive inventions for architects and interior designers of the last decennium and was built by the Dutch company Bohemian Coding.

Regular Sketch users are typically active creators. To help create awesome animations, adding data visualizations to interfaces or simply manage components, Sketch supports and nurtures an expansive plugin ecosystem, where users and developers share plug-in Sketch tools.

WeTransfer’s mission statement is all about keeping users in their creative flow— enabling “the effortless transfer of ideas from one creative mind to many”. The newly-released Sketch plugin makes sharing your Artboards in and out Sketch a fluid experience.

Travis Brown, WeTransfer VP of Business Development, commented:

“Sketch has become an integral tool for so many creatives. When we considered who to partner with, Sketch was an obvious choice. The WeTransfer team uses Sketch on a daily basis.  Removing friction and making it easier to share during that last collaborative step was our primary goal. The simple shortcut achieves that goal without interrupting your flow.”

To use the plugin users simply select any number of Artboards or Pages, and hit Command-L to upload them to WeTransfer, and generate a link. By copying the link users can share it via e.g. email — it’s as simple as that.
