Hey Johan -- I run the Figma blog. From time to time we work with external designers and developers who have written thoughtful pieces. We like sharing a variety of voices and perspectives, instead of focusing solely on Figma news.
Hey Michael, I'm Figma's editor. We enabled WebAssembly for the first time last year, but as that footnote mentioned, we invested a lot of time in recent months fixing bugs and working closely with the WebAssembly team. So the performance improvements from those WebAssembly optimizations are new.
Would love more color on what you both were hoping for! We're going to continue releasing designsystems.com stories, and we can shape the direction based on feedback from the community about what would be helpful.
Hey Gio, in November we announced our intention to turn designsystems.com into a community powered content site + host design systems meetups around the world. We used designsystems.com to collect pitches from people who wanted to write for the site once it launched as an editorial blog (which it did today). We then used it as an event info page for the meetups we hosted in cities across the world. Here's the original announcement for context: https://blog.figma.com/introducing-designsystems-com-8826fd2efd57
Hey David, when you say content types, what do you mean?
I agree, I've always loved their playful cartoons. Here's their Series C announcement post that shows this has been their way for years now: https://blog.intercom.com/35m-series-c-funding/
Thanks a bunch for the pointers! We may wind up making this a series of content at Figma, so these are good to know.
Yeah the riffing/brainstorming process works better when you're capped to a small design team (3 people). But teams of any size could benefit from being able to duplicate art boards during the critique to show (instead of just tell) the changes they think would help the design. Thanks the feedback!
Thanks Corey! That's how we felt too. Going to take both yours and Kevin's thoughts back to management as we figure out how to frame future case studies.
