The Figma Community is a public space where creators can publish design files and plugins. This allows anyone in the world to duplicate, inspect, and remix them.
There are endless opportunities for Community files, your imagination is the limit. There are full UI and design kits - like Google's Material design - to educational resources, like our own feature playground files.
To help with attribution, Figma tracks every time a file from the Community is duplicated. This allows us to trace duplicated files back to the original creator.
Remixes are files that have been published to the Community that originally came from another Community file.
When you remix a File we will:
- Add this file to the Remixes section of the original file page
- Add an attribution to the file page to show the original file and creator
Copyright and licensing: Files published to the Figma Community are shared with an Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) license. This isn't a public domain license.
This means that you are free to share and adapt these files, but you must give credit to the original creator.

Duplicate a Community File
To add a File to your account, you can duplicate it. You won't have access to the original File's Version History, Comments, or permissions. The duplicate will be a completely new File.
There are a few different ways to access a File page:
- Search for the file in the Figma Community
- Open the file from the Creator's profile
- Via the file's URL: https://www.figma.com/c/file/784448220678228461
