In case you missed it, we recently released our integration with Zapier. But, before we could roll out this new feature to our users, we wanted to test it for ourselves. That’s why we hosted an all-remote Zeplin + Zapier Hackathon!

In case you don’t know, Zapier is a wildly helpful no-code workflow and automation tool. It allows folks to connect thousands of tools to automate their work with “Zaps.”

To get your workflow muscles warmed up, we wanted to share the winning Zaps from our internal hackathon. Enjoy! ⚡

Component Variants

One of the most popular ways designers use Zeplin today is to…

With our release of Connected Components last year, we made it possible for developers to establish a connection between finalized designs in Zeplin to components that reside in their codebase. This provided a great way for developers to link their designs to sources of documentation like Storybook, GitHub and many more.

While this connection is great, we wanted to go even further.

So today, we’re excited to introduce the new Zeplin add-on for Storybook. With this new integration, developers will be…

Digital Experience specialist Lanna Solci joined Electrolux in early 2019 to help refine Electrolux’s processes for building digital experiences integrated with physical appliances. She recently spoke with the Zeplin crew on how her team has adopted a workflow encompassing Zeplin, Overflow and Adobe XD.

Keep your team up-to-date with design changes and conversations happening in Zeplin

Thousands of product teams collaborate in Zeplin every day. However, we’re aware that Zeplin is not the only place where they collaborate. This is why we want to leverage your investments in other tools through deep integrations.

Back in 2015, tightly integrating Zeplin with Slack was one of the first things we worked on. How does it help? Designer publishes a new design to Zeplin, the team is automatically notified. Developer raises a question, the team is automatically notified. Designer publishes a change to the design, the team is automatically notified.

Currently, Zeplin and Slack are a foundational combo for…

We had a chance to speak with Kelsey Kimura, UI/UX Designer at WestJet. Kelsey is a principal designer focused on WestJet’s web experience.

We focused on how the combination of Zeplin and Adobe XD helped improve their collaboration and workflow. Enjoy the conversation folks!

How is the design team set up?

We’re a growing team and partnering with agencies to help re-imagine our digital experience. We are a centralized design team however with designers working on our different product teams. We use a figurative elevator model that allows designers to jump-on and jump-off different projects to temporarily support each other’s products during big initiatives or priorities.
