Ceros Announces Acquisition of Design-to-Code Platform Avocode

Purchase allows Ceros to improve existing design API integration, reduce friction for designers

 Ceros, the cloud-based, no-code design platform powering the most exceptional interactive digital content, announced today its acquisition of Prague-based Avocode, the revolutionary design-to-code platform used by companies including eBay, Panasonic and Tesla. The purchase allows Ceros to improve the integration of the Avocode Open Design API and eliminate an all-too-familiar pain point for designers — how to bring design files from one platform over to another.

Avocode’s technology, with which Ceros previously had integrated, saves designers time by converting design files from sources such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Sketch into interactive, online content via the Ceros Studio. This process of taking original design files and bringing them to life online is seamless. It requires no coding on the part of the designer, a hallmark of Ceros products.

Avocode’s technology is perfectly suited to Ceros’ mission of helping the world unlock creativity, Ceros CEO Simon Berg said.

“We are insanely excited about the Avocode team and technology becoming part of the Ceros family,” Berg said. “Our businesses and cultures could not be more aligned, and our shared vision of the future is palpable.”

Avocode CEO Vu Hoang Anh sees Ceros as a leader in the creative industry and has experienced firsthand Ceros’ support for the company’s Open Design API. The Avocode team believes Ceros offers the best way to grow the technology and bring it to a wider audience.

“We’re thrilled to join Ceros today and even more excited to be able to continue our joint mission to unlock design for everyone. Ceros is undeniably the right home and the best possible team to join,” he said. “Not only can we take our mission to the next level, but most importantly, both companies share the same values. We can’t wait to see what amazing products we will create together.”
