Super slick product that has quickly become the dashboard for every design file my company works on. Haven't heard a single person ask where the latest file was since we started with Trunk.

Pros:

Trunk has brought order to the chaos of my team's designs. really intuitive design. Great collision detection.

Cons:

More notifications on 'commits'.

Awesome - thanks for this Michael! .. and yes we are working on improving notifications as we speak! Will connect again once we push the changes.
Hey Chris! I love the idea and can't wait to try it out. How does it compare to Abstract? It certainly looks more lightweight!

@m_rlons Hey Marion. Awesome - we'd love your feedback on Trunk! Good question. Our take on version control is automating the version control process. As designers, we feel theres a lot going on already. That's why we automatically create the branches and have gone away from wording like 'merging' and 'pull requests'. Sure its important we have these concepts under the hood (which we do), but the feedback we've had so far from designers is that they enjoy our 'hands off approach' to helping the designers workflow.

Thanks @duellsy for hunting us! 👏 Today we are launching the Trunk Beta and opening it up to designers everywhere. We’re a small team in Sydney Australia that has been working on improving design collaboration, through version control. After 10+ years of working in the design industry, Trunk represents our accumulated experience and take on version control / design collaboration . The last few months we’ve gone from prototype to now releasing the first version of our app for individuals and teams. Talking of which, we’ve had some amazing teams like Anomaly, AKQA, RGA & Massive feeding back on Trunk - helping to shape the product, but we need your feedback! 😀 Trunk utilises Git under the hood. We’ve streamlined the Git workflow so that designers can still use these powerful features without getting too distracted from their day to day workflow. We want to support a designers workflow - not take over it. Trunk currently supports both Sketch and Photoshop(Alpha). Features include: - Supports Sketch & Photoshop files - Easily handle merge conflicts - Spaces for teams to organise projects - Share and comment on Sketch and Photoshop designs with others - Revert file history This is just the start for us - we are really looking forward to your feedback! Cheers, Elliott

This looks like a great way for design teams to work on designs. How does it sit on top of shared drives like dropbox and google drive?

@djinoz Hey DJ! Good question. We are treating those intergrations as custom enterprise solutions for now. With Trunk we host the files remotely. Everything is backed up to the cloud daily and encrypted. Happy to chat more on this!
