Figma 101

A free 7-day email course

When it comes to design software, Figma is the cool new kid on the block. It combines the simplicity of Sketch with real-time collaboration features and powerful extra tools. Even better, it runs in your web browser, meaning you can use it on any computer.

In just 30 minutes a day, you’ll:

  • Learn how to use all of Figma’s core features, including interface basics, keyboard shortcuts, and shape tools
  • Cover advanced tips and tricks, understanding vector networks, Boolean commands, and libraries
  • Design your own mobile app, and make prototypes to present and share

Why should you learn Figma?

Figma is great for people who are new to design because it’s free and works everywhere (including computer labs). Unlike other design tools you don’t need a masters degree, the features are simple and intuitive so you spend more time learning how to design instead of how to use a design tool.

This real-time, all-in-one environment is a boon for design professionals, who have long relied on cobbled-together workflows involving multiple programs, plug-ins, and cloud services.
