Christian Krammer is a web-designer from Austria, who lives there with his wife and 10-years old son. He was an avid Photoshop user once, but as soon as he got a Mac he switched over to Sketch and never went back again. Since then he literally lives in the design app and knows it inside out. Christian has designed everything you can imagine in Sketch, from websites to apps and icons, even print material.
He shares his knowledge about the application on sketchtips.info now for almost three years and has helped countless designers to become more versatile in the design app. His Sketch courses on Skillshare also supported many to brush up their skills. Christian is the author of “The Sketch Handbook”, that was released recently from Smashing Magazine. It features everything you ever wanted to know about designing with Sketch on 376 pages.
When he’s not tinkering around with Sketch he enjoys to do some sports or watch a good movie. By the way, his all-time favorite is Fight Club. Family and nature are very important for Christian and he loves to spend time outdoors.
