We all know that communicating a design to our team is a vital part of the design process. But since many design tools don't focus on design transparency and collaboration, sharing our work while we are designing is not a seamless process. That's why some teams have switched to Figma, a design tool that focuses on collaboration. 

Patrick and Andy met with Dan Vineyard to chat about how he is using Figma's collaboration features on his team and how it has increased team alignment and created a faster design process.



  • How Figma has speed up his design process through open team collaboration. 
  • How he gets developer and his product manager to ideate together in his design files in real time. 
  • How to get buy-in from your team to start to implement Figma and see how it can improve your process. 

And much, much, much more... Dan's an insightful guy.
