STARTS NOVEMBER 1st! Working in design today is more demanding than ever. Interaction and UI designers are expected to maintain a high skill level despite the high-paced development of the field. You have to constantly keep up with new methods and techniques, new tools, and their features.

The UI Design and Prototyping with Figma track will take a holistic view on UI design work. Together we'll explore the latest best practices for UI design, prototyping, and Figma use, including sharing, storing, and organising design artefacts, prototyping, and collaborating with cross-functional partners.

The track continually adapts to the needs of the members, but includes, e.g.:

  • UI design starting points: From blue-sky concepts to working with a design system
  • Working with a team, even if you are the only designer: How to be efficient with your file
  • How to make reusable components that make sense (and actually save time)
  • How to create realistic prototypes and where to test them
  • Good Figma habits that make you more efficient and simplify making changes
  • Creating UI design that can easily be implemented by developers
  • Organizing your Figma into a single source of truth for design
  • How to collaborate efficiently with non-designers in Figma

Every week Georgiy Chernyavsky provides one hour of carefully selected recommendations on what to read, watch, or listen to, in order to stay ahead. The monthly 1-hour live sessions with Georgiy typically start at 08:00 CET/CEST. Once you sign up, you'll receive calendar bookings well ahead of each session.

N.B. You need a Figma account to follow this track.
