The Industry Standard for Developer Handoff

2021-07-16

Pros

It keeps track of the version history of a design, allows collaborators to comment directly on designs, and supports showing the same mockup in different UI (user interface) states.

Cons

Zeplin is excellent at facilitating the handoff process for individual screen designs, however, for engineers, it can be difficult to keep track of everything when there are many screens and animations between screens.

Excellent hand-off from designers to developers

2019-10-15

Very nice tool with a great interface. Easy to use and handle saving a lot of time in the development process.

Pros

Also collaboration was easy using links you could share with stakeholders.

Cons

The free tear can only store one project at a time. It was sometime cases when the software was not 100% accurate.

Good product that could be even better

2019-09-05

Pros

Love the snippets of code our devs get directly from Zeplin - Ability to comment directly on the screens - Love the slack integration

Cons

- Different colors might have similar names from one project to another if you don't have a global styleguide (which has messed the colors in our product in some areas) - Global styleguides are extremely buggy -- it's very hard to replace/move/rename colors once you've imported colors from a project. - There is no functionality to see how the flow of the design work (you have to manually annotate in a comment where each button/link brings you to) so we need to rely on prototypes or other flow chart tools to explain that to devs - No way to communicate animations

Fully offers what you need for design-development exchange

2020-01-12

It is an awesome tool to keep track of your desings and exchange information on versions, add hints and/or insights.

Pros

I was totally stunned by how easy it is to export designs and keep them updated.

Cons

I could have used editing the preset for a project, whether it is web or android or iOS based - because I accidentally set the wrong preset.

Great for Enabling Non-Designer Input on Design Work

2021-05-06

Pros

The comment tagging functionality and ability to comment on specific components of a design has greatly shortened feedback loops on important design elements of product releases.

Cons

I'm not sure if this functionality exists, but the ability to customize notification settings so emails are only sent when you are mentioned in a comment would be great.

First designers/developers share content app

2021-08-23

Also I could add comments for designers and solve conversations on the zeplin file.

Pros

What I like most is that you can click two parts of the screen and see the exact distance between them, in other apps that distance is not so easy to get.

Cons

I didn't like the desktop version of Zeplin because its really slow.

Can Be A Helpful Design Workspace

2021-04-11

Pros

For those reviewing design mockups, comments can be made directly in Zeplin, and you can tag specific team members to ensure they are notified of any questions or suggested edits.

Cons

The only con is the price, which is a bit more expensive than comparable tools.

Easy prototyping and streamlined handoffs

2021-09-09

Pros

In my opinion, it is primarily a piece of software that helps our design department with the task of sharing and creating designs and style guides with our development team and project managers.

Cons

When it comes to uploading and syncing assets, Sketch and Photoshop work well, but Illustrator can at times be cumbersome/difficult to use. Also, there is no possibility of navigating within the screen.

Brilliant!

2019-09-19

Very positive experience with Zeplin so far, quick to use from my side of the job upon receiving a zeplin file from a designer.

Pros

Although I see only my side of Zeplin it is simple to use and much quicker than having to slice out every needed asset from a photoshop or sketch file.

Cons

If I need an asset outside of what has been prepped by the designer this is not possible through Zeplin and I would have to find the Photoshop or Sketch file and create an asset from that the oldschool way.

Design software for non-designers

2021-08-19

Pros

It was quick to go over, easy to share design between team members before reaching to final conclusion

Cons

May be I do not have enough experience in using design software, so that might be the reason

Beautful Software

2019-10-15

Great for collaboration, great for hand off, great first experience.

Pros

The free version is pretty good.

Cons

It was my first time using this software, and there was a bit of a learning curve. Afterwards, though it's great! So not a complaint. I'm just really happy about this program. Teamwork makes the dream work.

Takes all the guess work out of development

2021-02-05

It has greatly simplified the process of extracting CSS code from a Sketch design.

Pros

All my components from Sketch are automatically brought into Zeplin in an easy to use interface that shows me the components, and has extracted all the CSS for me to easily use in my code.

Cons

There are a few features missing, but most of these are on their roadmap so I'm confident it'll continue to improve over time.

Great tool for handoff to devs

2019-09-10

We have solved handoff to development with a means that they feel comfortable with.

Pros

I like how devs can easily see what colors, font size, or spacing is in my designs.

Cons

It’s easy to get lost in the list of all the exported designs.

Simple Easy Dev Handoff

2020-02-10

Pros

It has no fancy gimmiks which other tools in the same category do have but simply because it robust it is my choice.

Cons

I wish Zeplin could solve the dev handoff problem end to end by use of design tokens and better design system documentation, and become that single source of truth for designers and developers.

Zeplin is a must for software teams with UX/UI and development.

2020-02-28

The designers can focus on design, and the developers can focus on developing without working if something follows the style guide... because it does with Zeplin.

Pros

Zeplin makes is incredibly easy to hand off design items (mockups, prototypes, completed designs, etc.) to the development team.

Cons

I've used it at two companies and it's greatly improved the process between design and development.

Zeplin provides an easy way for handoffs to happen

2019-09-06

Pros

I love how handoffs are so easy to do, as all the design elements are clearly shown on the screen and all elements have easy CSS references.

Cons

I don't like how there's no prototyping available in the software. If there was prototype support, this software would be improved a lot.
