We’ll use Figma for this class, but that’s not really the point. Components are useful because they help you really think about how interfaces are constructed, and play more nicely with others. Figma is a solid means to an end.
You. You care about your craft, and want to make components your colleagues will compliment.
Designers who don’t mind rolling up their sleeves and getting into the nitty gritty.
Designers who enjoy meeting other designers from around the world and nerding out together.
Naturally, this class is hands-on and collaborative.
We’ll sweat the small stuff... like naming, ordering, and setting defaults.
OK there’s no really great way to make tables in Figma, but we’re gonna get as close as we can!
Let’s be honest, this will only speed you up a bit, but you’ll feel the difference.
