Large design teams often rely on digital communication to share updated versions of projects or new creative resources. Since design software now includes a myriad of Adobe programs + Sketch App, it only makes sense to connect everything into a single platform.
This is the goal of Relay.io. Designers can now share resources directly through Slack whether they come from Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch, or even Google Chrome.
Feedback can be added via annotation on top of graphic design files which all team members can see. Users can also leave Slack comments which get archived in the thread.
Best of all Relay doesn’t require a Slack account. Literally anyone on your team with Internet access can view the threads and leave comments/annotations as needed.
Unfortunately Relay is currently in private beta which means there isn’t an easy way to preview anything. But if you sign up now you’re likely to get an invitation quicker with more direct features.
In time the Relay team is sure to release more information about how it can work publicly among small & large creative teams.
For now we just have to wait and keep our eyes peeled for new updates as they become available.
