    With Sketch’s cool new file format, we definitely could. But generally, it’s pretty hard to get two design apps to render in exactly the same way. Especially when eagle-eyed designers notice every pixel :-) On top of that, Framer is browser-based and has different capabilities than Sketch (for example, we don’t have grouping). Framer Design was built as an alternative to Sketch, as a way to express graphics especially for interaction work, with a focus on hard problems like layout and hierarchy.

    So I don’t think we’ll be focusing on integrating Sketch and Framer Design (or Figma or Photoshop), but rather on making Framer Design better and better.

      That's fair. Thanks Koen.

      The main concern I have is importing Sketch assets into Framer. Until something like redlining (colors, font, etc. re. Zeplin) exists in Framer Cloud I'm going to have to continue to use Sketch.

      Hi Koen,

      I was investigating the opportunities of Sketch importing with Framer Inventory and would like to continue exploring. If there is a kind of API to create objects in Framer Design, I will definitely take a look.

      Even the ability to sync back from code would be really handy!
