Recently, Gina Bhawalkar and I attended Figma’s Config customer conference. For those unfamiliar with Figma, it’s a design and prototyping tool known for supporting collaborative design processes. In this video, we talk about major themes and big takeaways from the event:

  • What is “open source design,” and is it a new thing?
  • Unexpected benefits of design systems
  • New demands on designers’ attention
  • Presence of AI (or lack thereof)
  • What should design leaders do now?
