Collaboration has at all times been at the coronary heart of what Figma does. Founder Dylan Field labored for years earlier than launching Figma with the sole mission of constructing design a multiplayer sport.
Since launch, the firm has reached a $10 billion valuation and accrued tens of millions of customers, all on the again of that very same collaboration-based ideology.
So it ought to come as no shock that Figma’s most collaborative product but, FigJam, is increasing to the iPad on March 15.
FigJam is a whiteboarding instrument that launched in early 2021 that permits of us inside a corporation (not simply designers) to brainstorm and work collectively on initiatives.
FigJam performance consists of sticky notes, emojis and drawing instruments, in addition to shapes, pre-built traces and connectors, stamps and cursor chats. As anticipated, FigJam works with Figma so parts or design objects created on Figjam can transfer over to Figma simply.
In some ways, FigJam is as a lot about distribution as it’s about the product itself. It’s an enlargement of Figma’s already sturdy plugin neighborhood, and even permits for folk to invite non-users of Figma or FigJam to an “Open Session”, the place anybody can be a part of with out a login for a 24-hour window.
In essence, it takes Figma from a design platform to a workflow instrument for a whole group, and naturally spreads the phrase about the suite of instruments to partnering organizations.
We’ve coated FigJam fairly extensively since its launch. Check out a few of our previous protection under to get in the weeds on the whiteboarding instrument.
