Intro to Figma

Organized by General Assembly
Online Workshop on 27 Sep 2021


Meet Figma, a collaborative interface design tool.

Looking for an alternative to Photoshop or Sketch or just looking to try out a new design tool? In this workshop, you'll learn the ins and outs of Figma, a new online browser tool for designers (and lovers of design) that allows for easy collaboration with your team.

Through hands-on exercises, we'll build a simple project together to learn how to use styles, components, prototyping tools, and live preview - all within Figma itself. You'll also be able to immediate collaborate with others as you go!

Please note:

This workshop is highly interactive with group activities and discussions throughout. To participate you will need to:
