Intro to Figma

Figma is a collaborative, web-based tool for interface design and prototyping. It’s used by teams at Twitter, Square, and IBM to create scalable design systems across organizations. We’re thrilled to host a virtual Introduction to Figma workshop with Twitter product designer Sean Goodwin and Coda product designer Alicia Salvino.

You’ll get familiar with the tools and interaction capabilities, understand the range of UI kits and assets, and learn about creating design systems.

This workshop is designed for those with little or no prior experience using Figma. Some experience with designing for the web is preferred for this workshop.
