Design software is good at enabling designers to see their individual projects to fruition, but it falls far behind other, non-design platforms when it comes to collaboration — Figma is a design platform that's looking to close the gap. The platform lets multiple users work on a prototype at the same time with live updates; it's basically Google Docs but for designers.

Design projects are sometimes handled by a single designer, but often bigger projects require many hands. In the past, designers have had to navigate that by either working in the same physical space or by passing files back and forth and making sure they always have the most up-to-date version. Figma's live documents let designers collaborate in real time without having to worry about things like versioning or in-office meetings.
