Startup Design Flow (Jira + Sketch + InVision + Zeplin)

    Overall it looks like a pretty solid flow.

    I've found just sending a link to Zeplin or Invision leaves a lot open for interpretation. Instead I create design docs. Whilst it's a little more up front work I find it saves a lot of time if you can preemptively answer questions, document edge cases, detail animations etc.

    The content depending largely on the specific project, but typically include: An outline for the project goals, relevant research and then a deep dive into specs. This usually involves images (gifs or videos are even better), notes and links out to prototypes etc.

      We do the same thing in the company I work for, but we include de design docs directly in the task/user story description in Jira. This way the developer doesn't have to open multiple tabs to have access to the relevant information.
