On a mission to transform design.

Abstract started from a question. Specifically, “Why don’t designers have proper version control?” And so the company’s first product was born: a tool to manage, version, and document design files in one place. Since its 2017 launch, Abstract has been the leading platform for file-based design collaboration, helping more than 7,000 companies improve their workflows. Today, they build products to support the huge portion of a designer’s job that isn’t drawing, kerning, or prototyping. Because design teams deserve their own space to collaborate. Welcome to Abstract, the design intelligence platform.
