    I don't get it, the product is free for individuals. Teams can afford to pay for this especially on the company's dime. It's crazy that Sofya and her team even poured years of their lives to provide such an awesome service like the noun project (for free). They've already given a lot to the design community.

    Now imagine if they had more money, how much more they could push the industry forward. As a creator, it's important to remember that real people make the things we use, including this free designer news website. I know it's the norm to not pay for software just like its the norm for designers to not create products people pay for. We need to use our skills to create better business models, sustainable products, and offerings for users, so that creators like Sofya can build even more new ideas.

    If we want our toolset to evolve faster, we need to support the people that are putting themselves out there to bring change. The community constantly talking about a tool and sharing it with others is much more powerful than you think.
