What is Scribble? And why?

Scribble is a collaboration tool for UI designers & copy writers.

If you are an UI designer then picture this,

  • You have designed an awesome landing page or, newsletter or product UI and need other stakeholders to write the copy.
  • So, you send them the UI in form of PNG or JPEG.
  • Copy folks write product copy over word document and send it over email.
  • Since, copy writers couldn’t visualize the copy in design, copy doesn’t fit in the UI.
  • So, you iterate.. over & over & over, and,10-times again…

And, waste 100s of product hours every month. All this happens since copy writers couldn’t visualize the copy within the design.

How is Scribble better?

That’s why we built Scribble. Using Scribble, UI designers are able to:

  • Sync artboards to cloud: Send and view all your XD artboards to cloud with a unique link
  • Invite copywriters via link: Share the link with stakeholders to write & collaborate* final copy.
  • Sync back artboards locally: Get final copy back in local XD file!

Compared to traditional email+word document method, Scribble offers better visualization to copy writers. Which makes it 12-times faster and saved 100s of hours in every design/copy collaboration.
