InVision is a company. But it’s also a bet.

It’s a bet that the screen is becoming the most important place in the world. And a bet that you—as designers—are at the forefront of a shift in the way every human on the planet will connect to each other and experience the world around them.

We believe so much in your future that we’ve done some pretty crazy things like make a feature-length documentary about product designers or establish a $5 million fund to invest in the next generation of designers and builders or spend two years creating the world’s most powerful screen design tool, only to make it free for designers everywhere. And we’re just getting started.

That’s why I’m pleased to announce we’ve raised $115 million in a Series F funding led by Spark Capital.

If we’ve learned one thing since founding InVision in 2011, it’s this: digital product design is the cornerstone of modern business. Understanding and participating in this transformation is one of the most important things happening in business today.

We see it in our own community every day: more than 5 million people now use InVision, including companies such as Adidas, Amazon, General Electric, IKEA, NASA, Netflix, Qantas, Starbucks, Toyota, Uber, and Vodafone.

These companies are doing much more than “investing in design.” They’re fundamentally reshaping their very existence for a digital world. The results go much farther than a great customer experience. According to a recent report published by McKinsey, companies with strong design practices increase their revenues and shareholder returns at nearly twice the rate of their industry counterparts.

At InVision we’re inspired to see this transformation. That’s why we’ll keep championing the work you do, investing in the design community, advancing your practice through world-class educational content, and working hard to evolve tools like InVision CloudInVision Studio, and InVision Design System Manager—all as part of our mission to bring design-driven innovation to every organization in the world.

The best part of doing what we do is seeing all the amazing work you create. We’re honored to play a part in your journey. Here’s to even bigger and better things in 2019 and beyond.
