Figma is a design platform for teams who build products together. Born on the Web, Figma helps teams create, share, test, and ship better designs from start to finish. Whether it’s consolidating tools, simplifying workflows, or collaborating across teams and time zones, Figma makes the design process faster, more efficient, and fun while keeping everyone on the same page.
Here in 2021, Figma is used by Uber, Deliveroo, and Bulb while also challenging the likes of Adobe and Sketch. The company has also reached unicorn status with a heavy-weight $10BN valuation. But what is the story behind Figma?
