It was reported at the end of last week that the U.S. Justice Department was preparing an antitrust lawsuit to prevent Adobe’s USD 20 billion acquisition of Figma from closing. Figma is currently attempting to reach people other than web designers.
Now it specifically targets web developers as well. About two-thirds of Figma users already identify as something other than “designers,” and one-third of Figma users are developers, according to the company. Although CEO Dylan Field has previously blogged about embracing code, the potential acquisition may be the reason Figma has decided to broaden its target audience.
As developers attempt to translate a design into code, Figma claims that it “can go a lot deeper in terms of catering to their needs.”
