Although it doesn’t bill itself as a design tool, Apple Keynote has a core following among interaction designers. Its flexibility, transitions, and vector quality make it an unsung tool. For example, FiftyThree—the creator of the app Paper—routinely uses Keynote to assemble new flows. Today, we’re announcing support for Keynote files within LayerVault.
If Designer News is any indication, the popularity of the SVG file format is increasing. The format is perfect for vector assets in a resolution independent world. Today, we’re bringing even deeper integration for the SVG format to LayerVault.
This week, we’re rolling out email digests for your organizations. Digests are sent out every Friday at 3pm local time and contain what happened within your organization that week.
Sketch, the design tool by Bohemian Coding, is a growing favorite among designers everywhere. It won an Apple Designer Award in 2012. We’ve watched the usage of the file format grow at a steady clip among LayerVault customers. Before too long, it was clear that LayerVault could benefit from a deeper integration with Sketch. After working in tandem with Bohemian Coding, we’re pleased to announce the support for Sketch pages, artboards, and slices within LayerVault.
Rob is joining the LayerVault team today from Olympia, WA. He comes on to head up system operations.
Rob is a fifteen-plus year veteran of the software industry, who has seen and done it all, or at least a very wide variety of it. When not at a keyboard, he can be found at a local volunteer fire station or behind the lens of a camera.
After months of it being the most-requested feature on the site, it’s finally here: the Designer News API. It’s an API that speaks JSON, is RESTish, and uses OAuth 2 for authentication. We designed it using the LayerVault API as a template. You can read the full documentation here.
