"Figma - a free Sketch"

Comments: Figma makes collaborating on designs, as easy as it could possibly be. No more sending a design file around a company - everyone works in the same place and its lovely.

Pros: Coming from Sketch, Figma feels super familiar and it works just as you'd expect it to. The collaboration aspect is fantastic - both in being able to work simultaneously with other designers, but also in demoing the site to clients and showing them in detail how to get around the site/design.

Cons: When using larger files - IE designs with large image assets etc, Figma can become a little sluggish.

"Figma should be the industry standard for UX/UI design"

Comments: As somebody who deals with complex applications, the collaboration and design system capabilities Figma brings to the table is just awesome. I switched from Sketch which covers some of the functionality but it's very hard to create and maintain a design system which mirrors how developers build up interfaces. Figma enables and encourages you to think in components and build and scale a design system as oppose to individual screens. This approach is essential to any product-based business.

Pros: - Collaboration: follow every update in real time. Sharing designs with client? You don't need to worry if they look at the latest updates or not. Collaborating with others on a design? No need to sync or update - it happens in real-time and automatically.
- Components: very easy to use components and start to apply an atomic design approach.
- Design system-centered thinking: Figma nailed a bunch of tedious and cumbersome design tasks: for example, it was not intuitive to work with layer styles, text styles and colors in Sketch (before I switched to Figma in 2018). In Figma, you can apply a saved color to texts, vector objects - anything. Very easy to work with saved text presets as well - they all built in a way to help you re-use them.

Cons: - The design (UI) of the interface is not so nice :) After 2 weeks I stopped noticing it, but as a designer it bugged me at the beginning.
- In some cases it takes time to load.
- Figma updates the software regularly which in some cases means a completely new interface - and sometimes not all the updates are very intuitive (though they are iterating pretty rapidly so that's a good thing)

"Great for teams of designers working on small design projects"

Comments: In general, Figma has been great. As mentioned in the cons section, it can get a little slow if a project is too big. I've also run into some small bugs with updating libraries and propagating those changes through other files. The issues resolve themselves when I restart the Figma desktop client, though.

Pros: All files are in the cloud which makes collaboration with other team members very easy. We can all contribute to the same design...even at the same time.

Cons: If projects get too big or a prototype gets too complex, the software can get kind of slow.

"It gets the job done"

Pros: I like that you can see everyone that is on the workspace and where they are exactly when they'er moving their mouse. Sometimes I like the fact that you can add tons of designs on one page/slide/workspace (I don't know what you call it).

Cons: It loads your stuff really really slow at times and that is really frustrating, especially when you're trying to show somebody something but the page just loads forever.

"A serious boon to Product Designers"

Comments: Excellent. Hoping for more advancements to make building large enterprise solutions easier, especially states for components.

Pros: The multiplayer aspect of Figma is a HUGE plus to the efficiency of the team. We're able to work remotely very easily. It being cloud based completely negates the need for multiple files. Even creating a design system library was a breeze

Cons: Figma has been in the market for a few years now. Yet, there aren't enough applications integrating with it. There is also a lack of plugins due to limitations from their API's
