Company developing collaboration platform for teams to create and maintain design system documentation

Zeroheight is a London based technology company developing collaboration platform for teams to create and maintain design system documentation. A design system is an evolving set of design elements that are used by companies and teams to design a product. Zeroheight provides a platform accessible to designers and developers to collaborate without the ambiguity of the traditional design process. The Zeroheight platform integrates with Sketch application with a plugin and Figma to import colors, typography, layouts, icons, and other design components.


Zeroheight is a web-based application which allows companies to prepare and maintain a design system to have uniform design models in their products. The collaboration feature allows team members to maintain style guides and edit design principles, style elements, and best practices to be followed by the whole team. The company provides a plugin for Sketch, which can upload components to the Zeroheight styleguides. Zeroheight then extracts elements like color, typography, and icons to be used in the design system document. Zeroheight can also import design elements from Figma web application.

Users are provided with a framework for a design document after creating a styleguide. Users can add categories to the document to include a specific set of design elements. Users can edit text, embed images and videos, code snippets with HTML/CSS/JS, and design tokens through the editor. Once the design document is complete, a design document can be shared with anyone with a link. Collaborators are added as editors who can modify the design system document.

Zeroheight provides a tier-based subscription plans with a free tier for personal projects with limited features and zerohieght branding.


Jerome de Lafargue and Robin Tindale founded the company in May 22 2015 and is headquartered in London, United Kingdom. Both the founders worked at Bloomberg before founding Zeroheight. Entrepreneur First backed the company as a part of EF5 cohort in 2016.
