About This Workshop

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!


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


This workshop will be completely live and online. In preparation, please download Zoom and Slack. Create a Figma account (it's free)

General familiarity with other design tools like Sketch will be helpful.

This session will not be recorded, however slides will be shared following the class.
