"We believe Figma and Adobe can deliver far more value for designers, creators and knowledge workers together than either company could deliver on its own"
Why do you have to merge to work together ?
Can't you just agree on a common product line, and have your engineers and developers work in shared teams ?
Because merging will bring nothing to designers, creators and knowledge workers. It will, however, consolidate shareholder value (extremely important), merge marketing departments and customer liists (there will be layoffs), and synergize development departments (there will be layoffs). Accounting will be in a tizzy for a year or two as well (and there will be layoffs).
But I see nothing in it for designers, creators and knowledge workers.
Maybe that's just me.
