Is Figma Right for You?

If you're wondering if Figma is right for you it's important to understand what Figma is. Figma is an online design tool (akin to google docs) that lets you design & prototype screens and gather feedback all in one place.

Because Figma is online, there's no need to install a program or upload or download project files. Your projects all live inside the Figma cloud which also helps with one of Figma's biggest advantages. Being able to collaborate live with many designers at the same time.

You can also share links with developers or stakeholders who can view your work in real-time or copy and paste code to use for development.

Figma works best for large design teams that want to work closely together without friction or versioning nightmares. This is the only design tool with this amount of collaborative design power.

If this feels like the right tool for you, join me in this course as I explain all these benefits in more detail.
