Newsletters > Issue #56: πŸš€ Meet Overflow, Ladies Can UX, and Bringing Back Skeuomorphic Design




Last week we saw prototyping introduced into Sketch, and this week brings us yet another new and exciting product – that isn’t a prototyping tool πŸ™Œ. Overflow is here to help us create user flows – check it out in the second half of this letter.
Our first section kicks off with a great story from Michael Flarup on the comeback of Skeuomorphic design. We also celebrate πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈ International Women’s Day with an awesome story
