Figma 1-Day Fundamentals Workshop | San Jose

About this workshop

Figma is the leading free and collaborative design tool utilized by today’s designers. Whether you’re looking for an alternative to Photoshop or Sketch, or just looking to try out a new design tool, look no further.

You'll learn the ins-and-outs of Figma that allow for easy collaboration with your team. We'll build a simple project together to learn how to use styles, components, prototyping tools, and live preview - all within Figma itself.

This 6-hour Figma 1-Day Fundamentals Workshop is the interactive and hands-on way to learn the fundamentals of Figma. You will dive head first into tools and techniques, skill up with exercises, and by the end of the day you’ll be ready to design and collaborate.

Takeaways

  • Get to know the interface and tools of Figma.
  • Build a small design in your free Figma account.
