Issue #21

Figma Community. Config Europe. Hybrid remote work model.

Hi there,

I hope you found a way to have some summer fun this year in spite of the pandemic. My family and I just returned from a socially distanced vacation in the New York woods, and I’m ready to get back to work on the book. It’s coming along nicely, and I can’t wait to launch it!

Meanwhile, Figma rolled out its Community to everyone and opened registration to Config Europe, which will run virtually on September 17th. Also in this issue: best practices for building a design system from Lyft, an approach to file organization from Shopify, and engineering handoff process at Uber Eats. Don’t miss a fantastic macOS Big Sur UI kit and a thoughtful post from Dylan Field on moving Figma towards a hybrid remote work model. Enjoy!
