Overall Satisfaction with Zeplin

Zeplin is being used by the Product, Design and Engineering teams to share designs between design and engineering. It solves the problem of easily sharing screen designs, as well as allowing engineers to "inspect" the screens so designers don't need to mark up every measurement on every screen. It also allows for easy share links to other departments.


  • Sharing screen designs.
  • Allowing engineers to inspect the elements on the designs.
  • Runs as a web app or as a standalone desktop app.


  • Requires each user to have a login.
  • Increased efficiency of communication between design and engineering.
Zeplin is a really nice lightweight app, that is easier to use than InVision for sharing purposes. InVision does primarily handle prototyping, which Zeplin does not do. Abstract is my product of choice but is also a slightly different tool — almost a GitHub for design. It handles file storage too, whereas Zeplin is just an additional sharing mechanism.
Zeplin is well suited to Product Design teams that need to share designs with engineering and product partners. It is well suited to designs for any sort of screen — desktop, mobile, apps, TV. Zeplin is probably suited mainly for print or physical design and is only relevant for product design organizations.
