Figma is fast becoming a must have platform for creatives, as it allows you to design, prototype, develop and collect feedback in a single collaborative design tool. Whether you're working in design, UX or project management, this one-day course will equip you with everything you need to know to get started on this platform.

During the course, we'll teach you how to set up your account and workspace. You'll discover how to create and manipulate shapes, images and text using auto layout features to ensure that your designs are robust and easily adaptable.

Throughout the session, you'll use the skills you've learned to develop your very own app. You’ll initially build this in wireframe, then develop it to the point of using connections and animation to create a sharable prototype, demonstrating the end user experience. Towards the end of the session, you’ll get your project ready for hand-off and export.

This Introduction to Figma course is available as a private training session that can be delivered via Virtual Classroom or at a location of your choice in Australia.
