We are lucky to have so many wonderful sponsors and exhibitors at this year’s DesignOps Summit–and we thought you might like to get to know them better! We’ve asked all of them some questions in the coming weeks that get at the heart of why they’re passionate about DesignOps, what it’s like to work with them, and what makes their products and services special to Design and Research Operations professionals.


Rosenfeld Media: What excites you about Design and Research Operations?

Thomas Lowry: How design operations can enable teams to produce their best work and raise the profile of design in each of their organizations.

Rosenfeld Media: Why are you sponsoring this year’s DesignOps Summit?

Thomas Lowry: This is a great opportunity to connect with leaders and practitioners in the design ops space to learn more about their challenges, work flows, and goals.

Rosenfeld Media: What types of value and benefits do you/your product bring to the practice and our community?

Thomas Lowry: Figma is changing traditional design operations by simplifying the designer workflow by allowing key contributors to be a part of the process. Because our tool lives in the browser, it gives teams a single destination where all of the latest design work lives. Our product helps teams break down silos and increase the transparency of the work between teams and enables everyone who can impact the design to work together collaboratively in real time. All of this contributes to companies being able to design digital products more efficiently.
