1. Zelpin


Zeplin is the ultimate collaboration tool between designers and developers. Collaboration between designers and developers is essential to the success of a web project, and it’s a measure of a team’s success. It allows designers to upload their wireframes or visual designs straight from Sketch and add them to project folders in Zeplin. Annotations will automatically be added to the designs (sizes, colours, margins and even CSS suggestions for certain elements) which will leave you with an online repository that the whole team can contribute to.
