The new pricing scheme is amazingly discriminating towards solitary designers. This new 1 project 3 files restriction basically force us to subscribe to features we don’t need and the free version has features we definitively don’t need. It is clear that Figma has forgotten about those of us who represent one of the biggest user-groups. We’ve been a great resource for Figma on many levels; free marketing, broader use in business environments and community content.
I am one hobby designer, and I don’t need unlimited editors or viewers - but I do need multiple projects and files. This change effectively make the tool completely useless for single seat users.
I thought the free starter plan would forever be free with the features available.
Since it is unlikely that Figma will change their ways, I would like to suggest that a plan for hobby use with the following features and limitations:
$5/month price point
- 3-5 projects
- Unlimited files
- 1 editor and 2 additional viewers
- Unlimited history
- Component library (max 10000 components)
Don’t be evil.
