Web-based design tool Figma is announcing an integration with Framer that will help design professionals import existing designs right into a prototyping environment.

Rather than import layers, Figma’s integration with Framer lets you upload entire asset catalogs. It’s also a fast way to go from design to code, and saves quite a bit of time.

Figma says it added Framer based on feedback from its users. While great for collaborative design, Figma users wanted a prototyping tool that helped them visualize, test and refine experiences across platform in real-time.

Rather than create it themselves — an arduous process — Figma partnered with Framer.
