Figma

Figma is a fantastic collaborative digital design tool. It allows you to create prototypes and design documentation to the same level as Sketch or other tools and has a real-time collaboration feature built on top of it. It came out with that feature in mind so it's built around that idea as opposed to finding a way to put it in later. This is a real advantage as inviting people to see your work is incredibly easy and they can then use your work to communicate what's happening rather than spending many hours in meetings showing everyone from the file you have on a hard drive that no one else can open.

Frontify

It depends on what the colleagues needs are. I think it is GREAT for visual brand management, but it does not (or I have not noticed) have the ability to really have brand descriptions and verbiage of different length (50, 100, 250 words, etc) or other written instructions for how to write, who should have a voice, how social media is handled, etc.

Pros

Figma

  • No installation needed! Functioning fully within a web browser, Figma can save on computer storage. And as an editor/designer, all the free space I can have is very much valued.
  • Figma allows for real-time collaboration. This is the best part of this product, as it removes some of the issues of designing "in a vacuum" when your designers are often working remotely.
  • Figma allows for ease of sharing and facilitating design feedback loops. Instead of having to use a plugin to a tool like InVision, we can quickly receive feedback within Figma and know that our comments are safely stored in the same place as the original designs.

Cons

Figma

  • Default settings can often make it quite difficult to find specific assets when part of a complete UIUX build.
  • Out of the box training is probably necessary but is not readily available or always intuitive.
  • View options could be improved to make it easier to the casual user to understand what they are looking at within the design.
  • Timestamp would be a nice-to-have feature to track iterations.

Frontify

  • I believe having an agency option would be great so that one could manage and build multiple brands for multiple clients.
  • Having sections for voice and personality would be great.
  • The ability to export a brand document to a .PDF to share with partners.

Frontify is very easy to use and makes updating information a breeze. Frontify acts a central location to house assets and information for easy sharing. You can plug and play information and even white label the guide if desired

Usability

Figma 6.9

Our designers and developers love this tool because it eliminates the need to package designs into a separate folder. We used to upload all PSDs or In Design files in a dropbox folder, and this tool changes that. However, as a project manager, I find it a little clunky. Most of the time, all I want to do is view a specific design, but Figma defaults to be zoomed out and then you have to zoom in and scroll to the specific design in order to see it

Figma has a support team that can be reached at any time for urgent requests. We have never really needed it as most issues have well-documented solutions either on their forums or on Youtube. However although their SLA could definitely be better for starter plans (which currently has a wait time of 3 to 5 business days for support), it isn't much different from other companies in the space

Alternatives Considered

Figma

Figma offers better pricing and is much simpler to use. The easy web or desktop app is effective and enough, no need for complicated solutions that Adobe provides. It can do pretty much everything we need it to do, however, Adobe will still dominate the space of design with its functions.

OpenBrand.com is not quite as visually appealing as Frontify, but it would be worth investigating if you are looking for brand management. I frequently use them in combination with each other and have a more appealing pricing structure.

Return on Investment

Figma

  • The most significant ROI has been time. It has saved our design team a lot of time that they used to spend packaging up designs and delivering them.
  • Figma can sometimes be a little confusing for our clients who have access. There is more time spent onboarding new users than with other apps we've used.
  • The comment function allows us to house any notes for the developer on the designs themselves instead of having to send separate documentation.

  • Central management of assets
