Today on The Chrome Cast podcast, we are back with another interview episode, chatting with Noah Levin, the Director of Design at Figma. If you aren’t familiar with Figma, it’s a powerful design and prototyping tool that was built from the ground up to be run in the browser. Because of that fact, you can leverage powerful collaborative tools so you don’t have to worry about local files or coordinating whether or not your team is working from the most updated version of a project. It’s like the Google Docs of design and prototyping.
In addition to talking about their collaborative design tool, we also covered the recent release of a new product called FigJam, an online whiteboard for teams to brainstorm together – again, all in the browser. We wrap up the conversation by discussing Google for Education’s partnership with Figma to bring the collaborative design platform to education Chromebooks across the US and how Figma is leaning into the education space. Figma is even hosting an edu-focused virtual conference from August 16-17 to help educators understand how to leverage Figma in the classroom.
