Go from design to code, without the guesswork.
Available on macOS and Windows
Move in parallel and open up the conversation with developers. Design Specs streamline the handoff process so you can deliver the context they need. Share fully-interactive prototypes, CSS code snippets, downloadable assets, and custom variable names – all in one link.
Handoff the full picture
Give developers a 360 look at user flows and room to interact with your prototype.
Get input early and often
