The Figma Community is a space where people, teams, and organizations can publish files, plugins, and widgets. Join the Community to discover resources and support other creators.
Our vision is to make design accessible to all, and the Community is one part of that vision. Help us build an inclusive space where people from around the world can share and discover creative work.

Explore the Figma Community
You can find resources by browsing through feature categories, top tags, and rotating resource collections curated by Figma. You can also search for specific resources and creators by name, tags, or profile handle (for example, @learn). Enter your search term in the Search field at the top of the screen and press Enter.
Filter search results by Files + templates, Plugins, Widgets, or Creators to view results by resource type. The count next to each option lets you know how many results there are for each resource. You can further narrow down the results using the additional filter options.
Note: Team and organization admins can also browse the Community as an admin. This allows you to manage resources on the team or organization's profile, as well as manage plugins across the organization. Access Community as an admin →

Resource Community pages
Once you’ve found a resource that interests you, click on the listing to view its Community page. The Community page is where you can read the resource’s description, view comments left by the creator or other Community members, and get the creator’s contact information for support with using the resource.
When viewing a resource's Community page, you may notice a number next to the creator's name. This indicates the number of people who have used the plugin or widget, or duplicated the file.
Note: On paid resources, this metric includes the total number of people who have previewed or purchased the resource.
Community profiles showcase contributions to the Figma community. You’ll need a Community profile to like resources, follow other creators, or leave comments.
You can create Community profiles for individuals, teams, or organizations. Create profiles for each of your accounts or use one profile across all of your Figma accounts.
