Built for the Biggest Imaginations

There are a lot of things you might want to design: a short animation, a slick interaction, or an extensive multi-screen app. No matter what you’re doing, you can do it with Principle.

  • Animation
    Principle’s timeline makes it quick work to illustrate the perfect bounce, ease, and pop.
  • Interaction
    Want to design a totally new interaction? Principle gives you the freedom to experiment without limiting you to pre-defined transitions.
  • Multiple Screens
    It’s a breeze to design the flow of a multi-screen app; and when you’re done you’ll have a bird’s-eye view of all your screens.

Totally New, Yet Immediately Familiar

With artboards, magic animations and a timeline, using Principle will give you Déjà vu.

  • Pick Up Where You Left Off
    Import your designs from your favorite design tools with a simple, one-click importer. Your designs will appear in Principle, ready for you to breathe new life into them. And if you make changes, importing again will intelligently merge your work
  • Design For Mobile, Web, and Desktop
    Choose a device preset or enter a custom Artboard size to design for your favorite platform. Hover events and mouse wheel scrolling make it easy to make web and desktop prototypes that feel like the real thing
  • Share Your Designs
    Principle Mirror for iOS lets others view your designs on their device. While designing, you can interact instantly by plugging your device into the computer. You can also export a standalone Mac app for others to view.


Lights. Camera. Interaction.

Showing your designs has never been simpler with the record feature: Export a video or an animated gif that can be shared on Dribbble, Twitter, and wherever else you’d like!

Built for macOS

Principle is powered by Core Animation, the hardware-accelerated animation engine that iOS and macOS are built on. It also includes the Mac features you love: Full-screen mode, a Retina interface, and Auto Save — so you’ll feel right at home.
