Adobe hat bekannt gegeben, dass sie das Onlinedesigntool Figma übernehmen wollen für 20 Milliarden $. (Abgeschlossen 2023, vorausgesetzt die Regulierungsbehörden geben ihr OK.)
Design and prototyping, for individuals and teams, executed in a very streamlined and modern, cloud-based environment, are Figma’s product strengths, and it’s amassed some 4 million users to date. Adobe meanwhile has been building and acquiring a number of businesses in the wider world of digital creation, and that has taken it not just into the larger and more general reaches of design but also marketing and other areas adjacent to design in the longer creation chain. Adobe’s DNA is in design, though, and it has built out iconic products in areas like imaging (such as Photoshop), fonts, illustration, video and 3D and more.
