Craft is a great tool to get the most out of InvisionWe use craft in many ways, but we primarily use 'Craft Sync' as a way to sync our work from Sketch to Invision, but also as a way to share design work to other departments that might be stakeholders in the projects. It helps solve a significant gap in collaboration by instantly allowing for both sharing of life designs, as well as feedback through Invision by the other stakeholders. We also use 'Craft Library' as a way to quickly generate brand guidelines and share symbols libraries and sticker sheets.,'Sync' usually works flawlessly in syncing my artboards to Invision. Once you set up the plugin, I can easily forget about tinkering with any of the settings - it just 'works'. 'Library' is pretty great for generating a style guide from my design doc. Clicking one button makes magic happen, and creates a super succinct document for me to share between teammates and other teams. 'Data' also works wonders when trying to approximate 'real' data into a static design. It turns the painful job of having to fill in designs with 'real-world' data a piece of cake. It helps me validate rough designs using an actual approximation of real content.,Craft frequently crashes - either the plugin for Sketch, or Sketch itself. Sometimes I have to turn off the plugin completely in order to be of sound mind that things won't crash. But frequent updates usually take care of any short term issues here. The 'Stock' option is great to grab a quick image for a design, but I would love to see the functionality in here expand to even more options, more services, and more filters so I can get what I need even faster and more accurately. 'Library' works great in its own ecosystem, but updating symbols and the like is somewhat manual and time consuming. I have to constantly ensure everything that needs to be in-sync, stays in-sync.,9,More accurate mockups for clients that take less time than without using Craft.

Craft is really well suited for any size design team - I have used it within a team of 3, and within a team of 30.

It helps with collaboration within the team, and between external teams through 'sync' with Invision.

It increases efficiency of using Sketch with things like 'data', 'duplicate', and 'stock'. These tools not only make designing faster, but also more realistic, allowing us to 'test' our designs sooner.

Suitable for mid-size to large websites (20 pages+). If you have a massive project with dozens or hundreds of content contributors, complex editorial process/workflow, are tied to a non-Linux platform (Microsoft Server), you may want an enterprise CMS like Episerver. If you need a small, cheap, theme-based, basic website with 5-15 pages, you'll probably go to WordPress.
