In this class, you’ll thoroughly learn Figma from beginning to advanced features for UI (user interface) and UX (user experience) design.
Figma is a modern design app that was built with the specific needs of a modern web designer, UX designer, or app designer in mind. Unlike image editing programs such as Photoshop—which were originally created for print, photo retouching, or illustration—the entire focus of Figma is on designing user interfaces and user experiences. You can craft the visuals and turn them into working prototypes all in a single app!
Figma uses frames (which other apps call artboards), to efficiently design web layouts for mobile, tablet, and desktop (or screens for apps). It’s vector-based, so you can scale for a variety of screen sizes with ease, as well as export hi-res (Retina) graphics for the web or apps. You’ll find tools and features specifically relevant to UI (User Interface) design and UX (User Experience) design, such as components, built-in prototyping tools, and much more.
Learn to design complex and realistic prototypes with advanced functionality. You’ll add interactions such as hovers, add animations to your designs using smart animate, make specific areas within a screen scrollable, and much more.
Figma is a web app and 100% cloud-based, so collaboration and easy file sharing is built-in. While you can install the Figma desktop app, you can also just log into Figma in any web browser and start designing without installing anything.
