Adobe just revealed the first change coming to Figma after acquisition

The announcement of Adobe’s acquisition of web design platform Figma made waves among the design community this year, with some designers concerned at how the platform might be transformed. At this year’s Adobe MAX conference in LA, Adobe shared some new details on the merge, and told Creative Bloq about some of the thinking behind the acquisition. 

During the opening Keynote, Adobe’s CPO Scott Belsky invited Figma Founder Dylan Field to briefly discuss the new relationship, with Field announcing that the first tangible change to Figma will be the much-requested addition of Adobe Fonts.
