Create beautiful timeline animations in Sketch

📣 We are delighted to announce that we are launching a pre-sale for a very exciting product that will empower designers, change the everyday workflow of many of you, and bring us one step closer to fulfilling our vision.

💪 User experience can be improved by orders of magnitude by having beautiful animations that enhance the look and feel of products. With our new product, designers will be able to create beautiful timeline animations in Sketch, and export them to GIFs or videos.

Today we are announcing our new product: Timeline for Sketch

☝️ What is Timeline for Sketch?

Timeline is a simple and powerful Sketch plugin that enables you to easily create beautiful Timeline Animations for your Websites, Mobile apps, Newsletters, Banners and more.

Just as our previous products, we’re putting great effort into making Timeline intuitive, easy to use, with no steep learning curve.

As well as a simple walkthrough video:


💰 In order to fund the development of Timeline, we are launching a pre-sale — with the goal of raising $20,000 in 14 days.

💃 We are extremely excited about the possibility of creating advanced animations directly in Sketch. If you are excited as we are, head over to our pre-sale website and get your early backer license. As an early backer you get 50% off for an annual license (first year).

🔥 Timeline annual license is $79. As an early backer, you’ll get it for only $39.

In order to get to our goal, we need 512 passionate designers to back this product.
