Styles, prototyping++ and design at scale
Another amazing update from the great team at Figma! Here's what's new:
1) Prototyping — Device frames, fixed objects, advanced scrolling
2) Styles — Styles + new Team Library functionality for building design systems in Figma
3) Organization tier — New “Organization” tier to help scale design management across big companies
Creating a library of styles and components that you can keep in a single file and use it across your whole project is a game changer.Cons:
A bit slow to load.
First I was skeptical. A tool in the browser? Meh. But, after using it for a month and getting used to it now I see the whole potential of this. Keeping files in the cloud has huge benefits, especially with the whole saves history and versions. Also, the new styles are so cool and fast to use, really liking it so far. Big project infrastructure and organisation is so much easier. Thanks, Figma!Dominik Levitsky has used this product for one month.
You never need to ask for a file!Cons:
Performance, Figma does not match the performance of a native app or local file.
When we started Matter (https://matterapp.com), @JW suggested we use FIGMA to work together. At the time I had never heard of FIGMA and thought Sketch was still the hip app to use - Little did I know how much FIGMA would make the team's life better. Given our designer was distributed, using FIGMA to share files, discuss work-in-progress made everyone's lives easier and the team more productive. My only wish for FIGMA is a big performance increase and less demanding memory needs on my macbook pro.
