    lets hope the free plan sticks around! Sounds like a its just another way to get more traction by widening the acquisition net!

      Certainly possible.

      Full disclaimer: I don't use Figma, but I do think it is a really powerful tool that is close in performance and features to Sketch.

      Side story because why not:

      In the US paying for software is a lot more socially expected and encouraged than in countries like my native Peru. People there and in other undeveloped countries simply do not see the value in software nor do they earn enough to invest in it. I can imagine free tools appearing more and demonstrating value as the industry itself grows.

      I know it may be a way to gain traction, but I do hope it stays for as long as possible.
