Magma: Unleashing Creativity with Advanced Workflow Collaboration

With a mission to foster more accessible creative workflows, GFR has joined forces with Magma, an innovative art project management platform transforming the landscape of creative collaboration. Magma is a centralized hub for creators, blending cutting-edge design tools with AI-driven collaboration.


Background: transforming creative workflows for everyone


The creative world of games, animations, and art has suffered from legacy solutions that segment the creative workflow. These tools slow down the work process and make it difficult for teams to collaborate smoothly.


Magma is changing this by creating a new way for creative projects to happen. Unlike the legacy solutions, Magma is a helpful hub for creativity. It brings together powerful design tools and smart teamwork, making it easy for people to work together, no matter where they are.



Magma stands out as a creative hub, revolutionizing how modern creative projects unfold. It's an integrated platform that fuses advanced design software capabilities with AI-driven collaboration. This convergence facilitates global collaboration, supporting real-time and asynchronous interactions that break free from geographical constraints. And it makes Magma not just an alternative for artists but a comprehensive platform that elevates the efficiency and creativity of managing creative projects.


About the founding team


The genesis of Magma lies in Radek Eichler's drive to overcome creative limitations experienced while collaborating on a video game project with a distributed team. His innovation laid the groundwork for real-time art collaboration, sparking collaboration with Damian Kaczmarek and Wojtek Jodel.


Inspired by the impact of Figma on UX/UI design, they united with a vision to revolutionize the creative industry by offering a platform that enhances workflow collaboration and empowers creators beyond traditional boundaries.


Magma launched at Lightbox Expo 2020, initially as a community platform. It quickly proved its value by enabling a fully remote art event during the pandemic, showcasing its potential to transform the creative process.


Evolving to focus on B2B workflows, Magma has developed features aimed at improving productivity for businesses and creative teams. This evolution reflects Magma’s commitment to making the creative process more accessible and collaborative, continuously striving to meet the dynamic needs of artists and teams globally.
