About this workshop

In this seven-hour workshop, you’ll get hands-on practice with the basics of UX and UI design using the industry leading design tool, Figma.

We’ll start by understanding why Figma is the top tool for UX and UI design, and get familiar with the basics of the Figma Design tool like frames, shape tools, and more.

From there you’ll get your hands into the design tool itself and create a mid-fidelity wireframe applying the basics you’ve learned. Then, you’ll add images, color, and typography to take your wireframe from mid-fidelity to high-fidelity

By the end of this workshop, you’ll have gained the skills and hands-on practice to create an interactive prototype in Figma, and you’ll have a great starting point to continue building your design skills. You might even be inspired to pursue a career in UX Design.

Please Note: Registration for this workshop will close 48 hours before the scheduled start date.
