    How much money did Bohemian turn down before you decided to build your own tool? ;p I've honestly been anticipating an InVision / Sketch merger for a while now. Studio is big news.

    Seriously though — I'm excited for this. InVision has been an invaluable tool for us when it come to communicating with engineering. The idea that the process will be seamless now is very exciting. And I agree — January can't come soon enough.

      Let's do the math. He said 40+ worked on this tool. I'll round it to 50 people. Since it's a complex one I'll say the guys have been paid on average 10k / month. He also said they worked on it for 2 years, so that's 24 months. I'll ignore the other costs but we can safely double the total to cover it.

      This means 240k x 50 which is $12M. So probably Invision probably spent around this amount up to date to build the tool. But most of the costs are pending - marketing, maintenance, feature parity with the other tools, bug fixing, etc.

      Considering Sketch's maturity and adoption, I wouldn't be surprised if they offered 10 times more - probably 100-200M.
