AMA: Figma 2.0

    1. Do you think Figma will ever have more complex prototyping capabilities built in?
    2. Any estimates for how much the Enterprise version of Figma will be (Coming 2018)?
    3. One reason for my hesitation to switch to Figma is the lack of plugins and integrations. Do you imagine Figma having a plugin community similar to Sketch?

    I know that Figma may be the future of design for me and my design team, but would love to get more insight! I think it's amazing what you guys are doing btw!

      Hi, Johnny! Thanks for your kind words about Figma.

      1. Right now we are more focused on basic prototyping. We did a bunch of user research before building out prototyping and concluded that the majority of people don't need advanced motion graphics functionality. For when they do need it, we integrate with Framer, which I think is a great prototyping tool.

      2. We're very much in requirements gathering mode for enterprise right now. We've learned that we're in a great place for security but there are other areas (ex: org wide administration) that we haven't thought a lot about yet. The enterprise interest definitely caught us by surprise; we didn't expect customers like Microsoft, Walgreens, PWC etc to be using Figma this soon! Once we understand enterprise requirements more we'll be thoughtful about a pricing model that makes sense for larger organizations and is easy for them to manage.

      3. We're more focused on integrations than plugins right now. Starting to build out a web API that will let other services get data out of Figma. We don't take building integrations / plugin systems lightly... stability, robustness and sound engineering are super important to our team, so you won't see us roll something out until we are confident we can support a system like this long term.
