    Honestly I’ll never understand the intense reaction the design community has to paying for software. Do we not expect people to pay for our work, either?

    I don’t use Figma but $12 /mos for their featureset is not even close to expensive. Neither is $100 a year for Sketch.

      $100 for Sketch felt cheap. But $100/year for UI changes and updates that I don't really use is a little annoying (still worth it but...). Couple that with the thousands I've spent using InVision since 2015, and I'm ready to trial Figma.

        I don't see why us paying way too much for InVision (me too btw :( ) is on Sketch to solve. They should charge nothing so InVision (a company that is trying to compete with them now) can gouge us?

        Figma is more $$$ than Sketch, and has a less forgiving Saas model. I support both, since paying for software you use daily seems the the proper thing to do to me, and both pricing models are quite reasonable.
