    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.
