Adobe buys Figma for $20 billion

Some would argue that it was a foregone conclusion: against a hefty $20 billion check, Adobe bought the interface prototyping specialist Figma, which emerged a few years ago and directly competes with Adobe XD.

If Figma had a rather slow start, its collaborative and web technology bet has finally paid off, to the point that Adobe’s takeover rumor has been circulating for a while, but around 15 billion.

In its announcement, Figma indicates that it is staying put, with the same pay schedule and the same manager, Dylan Field, one of the two co-founders (along with Evan Wallace). However, the functional field will change as Figma will gradually integrate “Adobe’s expertise in imaging, photography, illustration, video, 3D and typography.”

Thus, the organization remains independent, as Field insists on Adobe’s desire to leave things as they are.
