Pastel 2.0

Fast website feedback for designers and developers

#2 Product of the DayMarch 26, 2019
Pastel is the fastest way to gather visual feedback when building websites. Whether you are in the design or development phase, Pastel lets you comment directly on actual elements on a website or png/jpg files. Invite anyone to comment with just a simple link. Nothing to install or download.
  • Pros: 

    Simple and fast. I like the idea. I'd use it


    There are some issues with the support of different languages. This may steal a lot of customers from you guys.

    I like the idea though the UI needs to be a bit smoother. I also would be happy to be able to draw some arrows, etc. That's helpful when you're doing a review.

    Loving the new feature that facilitates feedback for imagery! As easy and intuitive to use as the OG canvases.


    Would love to see fleshed-out metadata and perhaps even version history for said new feature!

    Our team has been using Pastel for almost a year now. We even had the pleasure of meeting the crew in-person a few months ago! It's clear as day how serious they are about making Pastel into a highly usable, empowering tool for digital creatives and devs alike. Excited to see what comes next!

Hi Product Hunt, Pastel co-founder here. A year ago, we debuted on Product Hunt and got an overwhelmingly positive response. Your incredible support helped us spread the word and focus on the right things to build. Pastel started with a simple idea: what if we could comment directly on websites and make design and development collaboration easier and faster? We’re happy to say we’ve been able to do just that for the thousands of people that found Pastel over the last year, with over 100,000 comments on projects they’re working on. With today’s launch, we add the ability to use Pastel earlier in your web design process, with feedback on PNG & JPG mockups and designs. Now, we can confidently say Pastel can be your one feedback tool when building websites, from mockup to the final product in the browser. With this, we hope we’ll be able to help even more teams communicate better on web projects. This community’s support means a lot to us. We would love to hear about your experience with Pastel and any ways you’d like to see us improve the product. Thank you! Aloke

We used Pastel to launch the new Ada website. It had a big impact on our feedback collection cycle and ultimately the speed at which we were able to develop it. Thoughtfully designed product that just works. Congrats to the team!
