Figma as a Design Tool

Figma is a cloud-based design tool that is similar to Sketch in functionality and features, but with a lot of extra differences that make Figma better for Team Collaboration. Figma provides many tools that can be used in the designing phase, such as it provides plugins, prototype capabilities, and code generation for the developers.

Figma is a free, online UI tool

Figma app is a tool for the creation of clickable prototypes of applications.

Let's have a look at the interface:

Figma Interface- much easier to understand

Figma can be used both in the browser and directly on your platform as a stand-alone app (macOS, Windows). Designers can also use Figma Mirror Mobile App for viewing the live changes.

In many organizations, Designers use Figma as a designing tool. Almost every designer whom I contacted just loves it. Since Figma acts like a startup, they are able to rapidly iterate and design new features based on their user's needs.

Figma is incredible.

Here are some features which I love the most :
Real-time collaboration with up to 50 people.
Automatic version control, you don't need to save again
Convert any website into a Figma file with Figma to HTML
Intelligent and automatic animations
Supports GIFs in-app
Auto layout, a new smarter way to design components.

For the last year, I’ve been using Figma for my UI/UX design process and it has been saving me hours of work. It truly transformed my design workflow.
