We closed our offices and moved from in-person to fully online overnight. And while we had always used Figma for product design, over time it became our virtual home for everything from brainstorming to team-building.
It turned out that our community was using Figma in more ways and more often as well. Collaboration on the platform skyrocketed. In the year following the pandemic, we saw a 2.5x increase in collaborative projects taking place on our platform. The number of files shared across time zones increased by 3.5x.
We also saw more “non-designers” become a part of the design process. Among professional teams and organisations on Figma, the ratio of non-designers to designers grew by 25%. And today, more than two-thirds of people who use Figma identify as something other than “designer”.
The workload like this whatsapp number list allows both the vendor and the affiliate to focus on. Clicks are the number of clicks coming to your website’s URL from organic search results.
This means design is becoming more collaborative and open. Web-based tools like Figma, which make online files accessible with a single URL, are helping to make that possible. This, of course, was true before many of us started working remotely. Covid-19 simply sped up a process that was already underway.
What is next for Figma (and what are your biggest priorities?)
Last year was full of major milestones for Figma. More than 60,000 people signed up to attend our annual design conference, Config, last April. Our team has grown from about 300 to nearly 500 people. And following the launch of our whiteboard space, FigJam, we’re now a multi-product company.
