    I had to read this twice…Please tell me I read this all wrong… WP 5.0 is pushing and they are just now trying to muster design help for the back end( admin area )? Seriously?
    Word press agency’s need a wire framing tool with WP widgets unique to each theme to share design concepts to clients… Missed the mark if this is just a tool to design 5.0 with that is gonna push no matter what.

      Nope! UI changes for 5.0 have been locked for a couple weeks now — any Gutenberg mockups designers produce in Figma will be for subsequent releases.

      The design team has been trying to find a good way to introduce consistent design patterns in WordPress for years now. Figma is a step in that direction, irrespective of Gutenberg. This isn’t about looking for design help — it’s about adding a design tool available to the whole community. The majority of core designers use proprietary and OS-specific tools, and not everyone in the community has the resources to use those tools. Figma is a way we can equalize access, so I’m really grateful they’re partnered with WordPress.

    Figma is awesome. We love and use it in our company, too. Glad to see it helps the WP to have a better UI in the future.
