Figma has transformed the silo’d world of design into a collaborative, multiplayer game. Dylan Field, CEO and Co-Founder of Figma, shares his journey building the product and how he dropped out of college and ultimately scaled Figma to a $2B valuation. At YML, we use Figma across all disciplines for the end to end experience — not just design. It’s become a vital tool in building world-class digital products for both our team and our clients. Lastly, we're excited to welcome YML’s Chief Creative Officer, Stephen Clements, as a co-host for this episode.
