Figma Community Guidelines
Last Updated: October 10, 2019
Our vision is to make design accessible to all. To help advance this, we’ve developed the Figma Community to enable people from around the world to share and discover creative work. Please help us build a high-quality, inclusive community by ensuring your work follows these Community Guidelines and reporting any violations.
By publishing resources, you agree to these Community Guidelines, as well as our existing terms of service. We’re committed to these Community Guidelines, and we hope you are too. This is a living document and will change over time. You can see when these Community Guidelines were last revised by referring to the “Last Updated” legend above. Your continued use of the Figma Community will indicate your acceptance of the changes.
Figma reserves the right to remove a resource at any time. Overstepping any of the following boundaries may result in removed content, disabled accounts, or other restrictions. If you have any questions about the guidelines below, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Figma Community is a place to share your own work with other Figma users.
- As always, you retain your ownership rights in the content you post on the Figma Community

- Do not post advertisements; and

I will give credit for inspiration
Creating work inspired by someone or something else is natural and expected. Please make sure to give credit when posting content that is inspired by another member’s work. And please remember, attribution is a requirement of the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license ( CC BY 4.0), which governs the work made available through the Figma Community.
If you believe your work has been posted to the Figma Community without your consent, please review our copyright and IP policy.
I will not impersonate someone else
The community allows you to create a profile and establish your identity as a creator. To maintain trust and authenticity, we will disable accounts that attempt to impersonate another person or entity.
Please do not:
- Impersonate another individual or company;
- Intentionally use a deceptively similar username or avatar;
- Post misleading or false employment information; or
- Falsely attribute someone else's work.
How to report violations
Help us keep the Figma Community strong and protect our users’ integrity and safety:
- Each of us is an important part of the Figma Community. If you see something that you think may violate our guidelines, please help us by flagging the resource as inappropriate or writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- When you complete the report, try to provide as much information as possible, such as links, usernames, and descriptions of the content, so we can find and review it quickly. We may remove entire posts if either the imagery or associated captions violate our guidelines.
- Many disputes and misunderstandings can be resolved directly between Figma users. If one of your creations was posted by someone else, you could try contacting the violator directly and ask for the content to be taken down. If that doesn’t work, you can file a copyright report.
- We may work with law enforcement, including when we believe that there’s a risk of physical harm or threat to public safety.
If you believe that your post was removed incorrectly, please contact us directly at email@example.com.
