    Very cool VCS for design tools


    only for sketch, INCREDIBLY resource intensive, very buggy

    It's a great concept but the implementation is still lacking; resource usage is incredibly high, the application is frustratingly slow, and the amount of bugs encountered is in the tens per day.

    Easy to manage product design projects based on Git technology


    They need to grow faster.

    Support Adobe files.

    This is a new way to manage design work. I really appreciate their app pretty new and pretty awesome. Recommended for small and medium and larger design teams who are working with product apps.

    Daniel Cunha has used this product for one year.

Thanks @bentossell for hunting us! My name is Josh Brewer CEO and co-founder at Abstract. We are happy to finally show the world what we’ve been working on. Engineers have GitHub. Sales teams live in Salesforce. Even our friends in marketing have embraced Marketo as their home. What about us designers? When you think about it, designers are a pretty flexible bunch. We're willing to do whatever it takes to bring great ideas to life. We have workarounds. Not workflows. It’s clear that we need help managing the rest of our work. Team coordination, collaborating with stakeholders, and interpreting feedback are part of the design process. Designers have long wished for a system of record like what developers have come to rely upon with Github. We need a secure, reliable, stable place we can call home for our design work. We’ve spent the last year designing and building Abstract. Welcome home. We'll be here all day to answer any questions you might have, so ask away!

@jbrewer Thank you for the amazing work behind Abstract. I've been using for some time now (Private Alpha) and we love how easy is to keep track of our design updates.

@jbrewer - we've been on the Alpha for a short while at Typeform, and OMG, this is THE killer application for having your Designs as well organised and version controlled as your code. There is like no other application that is close. Not even a little bit close. You guys have nailed it. There is not enough superlatives to go around, it's simply da 💥

Abstract is without question the best way to manage design files. Full stop. A saved and synced file this is not. It’s a whole new way to consider design files, how they evolve, and how other stakeholders interact with those files. If you’re a designer looking for something more than just dumb files and destructive versioning, this is finally your day in the sun.

Abstract is one of those new product that changed the way we work from day one and we never looked back. Happy to see it available to everyone 👌🏼

Before Abstract, a non-insignificant amount of our Design workflow was spent managing files. Right-click, duplicate, rename. The struggle is real, and every designer knows it well. It's a waste of time, void of context, and a disk-space vampire. Engineers solved this problem years ago with tools like Git and Subversion. It's time Designers had their own version-control renaissance. That time is now, and the team at Abstract is leading the charge. Abstract has freed us to focus on Design, not file management. We've been using Abstract at Mesosphere now for close to a year, and it has truly changed the way we work. Every project we work on goes through Abstract. Designers on the team make branches for working changes and new features. It's an excellent way to not only store our files, but keep everyone up-to-date with all work in progress. I don't know if we could ever go back to a world where our team was working in Google Drive or Dropbox.
