Getting Started with Figma (2h)


In this class, I am going to teach you everything you need to know about Figma as a UX/UI Designer. 

We will start from zero, setting up an account and getting to know the Figma structure. 

I will then introduce you to the brief as throughout the course we will work on a real project to create a tracking app from the first stroke to finish design.


Part 1: Figma Basics - Creating a wireframe 

We will start with setting up a wireframe and flowchart using Figma whereby I will show you all the Figma basics such as

  • Setting up frames
  • Adding shapes, text, and color
  • Vector drawings in Figma
  • learn about the layers panel, grouping, and positioning
  • The magic of auto layout
  • Using pages in Figma for structure

Part 2: Setting up the UI Design

We will then bring the wireframe alive and set up the UI Design, where we will get to know powerful features such as

  • Styles for your color and typography settings to create a hierarchy
