Pour one out for Invision: InVision design collaboration services shutdown | Inside Design Blog
Tools like Invision, Zeplin, and Abstract came about to fill in feature gaps in products like Sketch and Photoshop and as those products added similar functionality and then Figma came in and ate all their lunches. I wonder if Invision turned down acquisition by Adobe at some point or did they really thing they could build their own design tool and compete?
Adobe has abandoned their $20 billion acquisition of Figma due to regulator pressure from the EU. Great to see more and more scrutiny from at least some countries (and very occasionally the US) into these obviously bad for everyone company acquisitions.
If Adobe had properly invested in my beloved Fireworks in the 2000s, maybe they’d have stopped Sketch and Figma before they even got started.
