Organizing Figma projects & files differs from team to team, depends on size of your team, the make up of your team & products. Consistency & teaching people how to quickly navigate these files so they aren’t relearning each time is important.

This is how we organize Figma…

When you’re a design team of one, or just working on your own projects, you can do whatever you want in Figma.

As soon as you add another designer, its important to have a plan & be consistent. As your company grows, more PMs, engineers, marketers are looking at Figma.

For context, @OneSignalDesign is a 7 person design team, and we are on the Figma Professional plan. Our 3 functions are Product Design, Visual Communications Design, and Design Engineering.

Our Figma project structure:

  • 🧠 Brainstorms and Meetings
  • 🧱 Design Systems
  • 👷 Product Design Projects
  • 👩‍🎨 Marcom Design Projects
  • 📣 Marcom Resources
  • 🏁 Main Blueprints
  • 🔍 UX Research
  • 🌡️ Temp Files + Resources
  • 🏰 Internal Company Resources
  • 🗄 Archived Projects
