Figma, a San Francisco, CA-based professional-grade, online tool for interface design, raised $14m in Series A round of funding.
The round was led by Greylock Partners with participation from Index Ventures, OATV, Iconiq, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner, White House Chief Data Scientist DJ Patil, Wealthfront CEO Adam Nash and Former Head of Design at Dropbox Soleio Cuervo. In conjunction with the funding, Greylock’s John Lilly joined Danny Rimer on Figma’s Board of Directors.
The company has raised $18m in total including a seed round in 2013 of $4m led by Danny Rimer at Index Ventures.
Founded in 2012 by Dylan Field and Evan Wallace, Figma provides software built specifically to create interface design projects directly in a web browser. Built using WebGL, Figma allows designers to move the entire process onto the web with designs becoming shareable. Based on owner authorization, team members can review or edit shared designs on any operating system.
Collaborative tools include real-time comments and notifications, as well as colors and asset libraries. Soon the platform will expand to enable simultaneous editing, where multiple collaborators can edit the same design at the same time.
