Connected space for product teams with components and more
Zeplin is a connected space for product teams where they can share designs, generate specs, assets and code snippets, tailored for iOS, Android and Web.
Great tool for exporting designs and sharing them with your teamCons:
Slicing and exporting svg assets still needs to be improved
I have been using this tool to share designs with stakeholders and developers for a long time now (since October 2015). Everybody loves Zeplin and it was so cool to follow the journey of the company and the evolution of the product.
Everything got better since we started using it, but I would like to mention two things that could still use some improvements:
1. Slicing and exporting assets from Sketch produces a different result when compared to the Zeplin svg export (for example, icons even have different sizes) - most of the times we need to drop the files into illustrator and tweak them there to ensure good results.
2. Organizing projects with tons of exported screens is a huge hassle (especially if the project was not organized properly from the beginning). You can use tags and sections to group screens but if you're designing complex products, you will probably find that not to be enough.Mihai Serban has used this product for one year.
Easy to use
Everything is in one placeCons:
No way to download the file or individual screens
No Jira integration
Zeplin has transformed our dev team. No more having a zillion versions of a PDF or designers spending a ton of time annotating designs. No more searching a million folders in a million places for assets, no more searching through emails to find answers to questions, and no more debates between developers about how to interpret the design. I love love love having everything in one place in such an easy to use format, I would never go back to the old way of doing things!Esley Svanas has used this product for one year.
UI seems fine.Cons:
Updated yesterday and crushed.
Don't ever try to click 'share to slack' button. There is no close btn on the pop up window. You have to force Zeplin to quit and restart your computer. Really annoying.May_W has used this product for one year.
