How Prezi uses Zeplin
Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software and storytelling tool for presenting ideas on a virtual canvas.
Hoffer Gábor, Senior Designer at Prezi, told us about how they are currently using Zeplin.
Prezi has cross-functional, mostly 5-7 people organized teams. Each team includes a product manager, UX researcher, designer and 3-4 developers (including tech lead). Currently 3-4 of these teams are using Zeplin.
"Zeplin is very impressive and came at the right time. I simply love it and not only me, my team had a little corner of love for Zeplin on our last retrospective. How cool is that? :)"
It filled the huge documentation gap between my complicated Sketch files and our developers' needs. They needed more info about colors, sizes and assets, I needed to make more documents about them and be present whenever I could.
Zeplin saves me a lot of time by visualising the right amount of information about a mockup and keeping the documentation.
Where does Zeplin fit in your workflow?
Whenever I'm finished with something and I wanna do it right, I put the designs in Zeplin, invite the developers, discuss it and add only the remaining information to the documentation or I create a prototype in Framer to try out and illustrate the interactions.

The best thing about it has to be the Guideline page with all the colors and fonts. I can imagine more ways to extend it, but it already forces me to keep me on the palette and focus on the cleanliness of my designs.
