London-based design app startup Marvel (not to be confused with Marvel of comic book fame), has raised $2m in new funding from a selection of different investors, including Index Ventures, Connect Ventures, and ustwo.

Having started as a side-project in 2013, Marvel is now home to eight team members, and the app has 160,000 users. It’s a prototyping platform where basic, static designs are uploaded and converted into interactive prototypes that perform like apps or websites. It’s sold on its ease of use. There’s no coding experience needed, yet still powerful enough for both casual and business applications.

Marvel’s app makes creating digital prototypes from static images easy, and the company has now raised $2m in new funding

In an interview with TechCityUK, co-founder Murat Mutlu explained the long-term vision for Marvel, saying he wants it to become, “the de-facto standard for bringing digital ideas to life.” The new funding will be used to grow the team to 16 members, primarily in the design and development area, but also adding those experienced in customer success and content.

The app is available for Android and iOS, and there are several pricing tiers available, including a basic free option to try it out.
