As a +20 year product designer, I wanted to solve my own problem.

Every time I had a new web project, I kept having to manually create a visual sitemap for myself and my clients just to get an idea of the scope and page flow. I also had to manually take screenshots of key pages to later use for reference and in my proposals.

I looked for a modern solution that would provide the same professional output I was used to making, and there was just nothing out there. So we built it. It took almost 2 years.

Why that long? Tons of technical iterations. Weird edge-cases..and so much feedback to consider.

Surprisingly crawling any website out there ( either public or behind logins ) is not as easy as we thought it would be. Shocker..I know.. But we’re not the quitting type.. so we plowed forward. Our goal was to achieve a +95% mapping success rate.. and we’ve done it.

But It wasn’t easy.

Especially while 100% bootstrapping, running Design2Dev.com and raising a growing 7-yr old. Luckily I was fortunate enough to find the right CTO & cofounder, Luciano Panaro who had just the right experience with scaling small ideas into solid foundations.

It’s only been 6-months so far, and the response has been incredible. Every day we love hearing from you folks about how many countless hours we save you, and what makes this more special is all the high quality ideas and feedback from all the users especially from the UX pros. They’re a tough bunch! But it has made some of our roadmapping decisions a lot easier as these folks have been instrumental. Thank you.

Our next hill to climb is simply being able to find the runway to build out a few more key features that we’ve learned from you are essential to complete your UX workflow.

To do this we need you to believe in us. Say it with me …“I believe!!!”

By buying a plan and sharing us with your networks, you ensure that we can continue to deliver this promise to you in 2020.

Ever forward! Thank you.
