Overall Satisfaction with Zeplin

We use Zeplin for collaboration between our designer and developers. Both of my companies have built very design/user experience centric products and we set a high bar for the implementation of the designs we create. However, developers are generally poor implementers of design and don't have a very good eye for design. Zeplin solves this problem and since we've started using it we've saved a lot of back and forth between developers and designers.
  • Provides dimensions across iOS, Android and Web which saves developers from a lot of guess and check when implementing designs
  • Allows for easy download of digital design assets for developers to easily organize and implement
  • Great user experience in terms of the product itself and a great value for your money
  • Automatically generates CSS for web designs which is AMAZING!
  • The uploading and syncing of assets is great for sketch and photoshop but we use illustrator and that can be cumbersome/tedious at times.
  • There are certain elements that have been a bit confusing to navigate at times, but for the most part, it's pretty user-friendly
  • More integrations
  • Zeplin has had a HUGE positive ROI for us! It has literally saved us hundreds of hours of back and forth between developers and designer. And those are two individuals whose time is very expensive. And Zeplin is very affordable so to me they provide incredible value. Probably shouldn't say this but I'd pay more than we pay for it.
  • It's saved a lot of frustration on both the developer and designer side of things. Getting designs to look right is one of the most painful parts of building a software product and Zeplin does an amazing job cutting out a lot of that frustration.
I know there are other products out there but Zeplin has been so effective that I haven't even bothered to look elsewhere. The whole experience of Zeplin has been excellent. However, once Adobe XD is more built out Zeplin will finally have a formidable competitor as it will be a more seamless process and a lot of design is performed within Adobe products.
Adobe XD is more seamless across products but it's still being built out and lacks a lot of functionality. So for right now, what Zeplin does for the whole process of implementing designs between designer and developer it's the best product on the market. It has literally saved us hundreds of hours of back and forth between developer and designer and it's seriously been a gamechanger for that process. Can't say enough good things about Zeplin!
