Howdy! :wave:

I’m Alex - you might recognize me from the Friends of Figma Slack community and around the internet (I’m @aalexdee on twitter )

When I’m not here I’m usually playing video games, hanging out with my dog Cece or helping teams get set up on Figma. Feel free to message me any time if you have any questions or just to say hello!

Hi everyone :wave: ! I’m Dylan, or @dylanmahler everywhere else on the web. I’m a Friends of Figma Community Advocate for Omaha, NE, and currently the Director of Product Design at Orion Advisor Solutions.

I live in Omaha, NE and when I’m not designing, I’m playing with my doggo, Sven, or playing Pokémon! I love learning about world culture and have a knack for learning languages. I’m always trying to improve my Japanese, so looking forward to connecting with some native speakers!

Feel free to check out my Figma Community profile!

What’s up! I’m Riley Sykes, a product designer at The New York Times, a Figma fan and an active member of the FoF Slack community. I can be found posting random thoughts mostly about design and video games as @RileyPsyches on Twitter. You can also find me on the Figma Community as @nyt_riley.

I’m so stoked to see this forum come into being. Another huge improvement in the Figma experience.

Hey there! :wave:

Alex here, I design products by day and create helpful & inspiring community resources by night.

I spent 2020 helping Figma users to solve all sorts of problems. My specialty — simple & efficient solutions when possible, hacky (but cool :wink:) in other cases.

Can’t wait to see you all in this cozy space! :hugs:

Hey Everyone! I’m Alex Carr, VP of Creative at Maark in Boston and live up in Salem MA :ghost:. Mostly focused on the design of digital tools for the enterprise. I like screenprinting, I have too many design books, and I have two cats. They’re pretty great cats.

I also made the Contrast plugin for Figma. :mag: :heart: :yellow_heart: :green_heart: :blue_heart:

Wow, so many friendly faces and impressive bios!

:wave: My name is Jason and I oversee our Support and Product Education teams here at Figma. I joined as Figma’s first Support hire 4 years ago and now our teams are 25 people strong and growing. @Josh and @thudson have been working hard on this new forum and I’m excited to see it come into existence. :clap:

My wife and I (and our little :dog: Sam) recently bought a house and moved from SF → LA. In my spare time I like to noodle on my guitar, hike, bike, practice flying my new drone, read philosophy and check out new coffee shops.

Happy New Year everyone! :partying_face:
