CloudApp Receives Investment from Adobe to Shape Future of Design

Following investment, Zight (formerly CloudApp) launches plugin for Adobe XD

We’re thrilled to release today, the Zight (formerly CloudApp) plugin for Adobe® XD CC. With this plugin, XD users can capture and instantly share their designs with team members without leaving Adobe XD.

This integration comes on the heels of Adobe’s investment in Zight (formerly CloudApp) earlier this year as a part of the Adobe Fund for Design. Adobe’s $10 million fund supports emerging companies to build products and services that shape the future of design. The Adobe investment brings Zight (formerly CloudApp)’s total funding to $6 million which includes recent investments from Cervin Ventures, Bloomberg Beta and others.

“Designers on product teams need the tools to design software faster. With the addition of XD, Adobe gives them an extensible platform to build products from concept to completion,” says Tyler Koblasa, CEO of Zight (formerly CloudApp).

“I’m proud to collaborate with Adobe. Zight (formerly CloudApp) provides the fastest sharing experience so designers can work efficiently. With a new tool like XD, we empower designers and makers to transform businesses and craft the technology of tomorrow.”

Zight (formerly CloudApp)’s plugin for Adobe XD debuts today, Monday October 15th 2018, at Adobe MAX in Los Angeles, CA – a leading global conference that brings together top creatives and leading experts to discuss the future of creativity and digital experience. Using the Zight (formerly CloudApp) plugin for Adobe XD, designers can share work faster and improve collaboration with clients and colleagues.

“We’re thrilled for Zight (formerly CloudApp) to launch its plugin for Adobe XD and have them as a part the Adobe Fund for Design,” said Vijay Vachani, director, partner platform and ecosystem, Creative Cloud at Adobe.

“At Adobe, we believe that we can change the world through digital experiences, and we welcome Zight (formerly CloudApp) to our ecosystem to continue to invest in the future of innovation, design and creativity.”
