About Figma & Figma's Global Design Community
Figma is a San Fran company launching Figma Global Design Community starting in Africa (Nigeria, Ghana & South Africa), with plans to extend to other countries soon. Figma’s mission is to make design accessible to everyone, anywhere in the world. Figma is the only digital design tool that runs on any computer that connects to the internet, is easy to use, easy to collaborate with, easy to learn and is free for individual users and small design teams.. Figma is especially focused on exposing more people (new to tech, programmers, engineers, etc) to design as a career path and believes that with a design community, everyone can help each other improve, no matter the current skill level and was inspired to start this effort after the CEO went to Lagos in January to speak at a Figma Design Systems Conference. While in Nigeria he saw firsthand the booming tech scene and demand both for designers and for learning design skills. Figma is combining (1) our free, easy to use, cross-platform tool with (2) educational content distributed through already-established networks and (3) an online and in-person community that mentors and helps teach each other to foster thriving design ecosystems full of talented designers hence the Figma Africa Slack Channel (has close to 700 design enthusiasts across Africa, check it out!!)
