About Figma

Figma is a cloud-based UI designing and prototyping tool, which allows multiple teams to collaborate on creating, testing, and deploying interface or product designs. Features include version history, project management, commenting, user-based permissions, plugin creation, and single sign-on (SSO).

The platform enables designers to prepare drawings using vector networks, pen, and arc tools, letting them develop pie charts, watch screens, or clocks without merging or connecting to the path’s origin. With the auto-layout feature, teams can automatically resize various components of interface designs such as buttons or lists by using padding, direction, and space settings. Figma allows users to create prototypes through various interactions such as hover, on-click, or button press, and utilize GIFs to add video elements, or animations. It also helps teams to simultaneously edit designs, track changes, add notes, discover newly uploaded files, and share design links with members.

Figma offers integration with multiple third-party applications including Maze, Zeplin, Trello, Flinto, Slack, Dropbox, and Jira. Designers can maintain a library of shareable assets such as icons, backgrounds, images, and fonts and gain visibility into the asset usage through analytics. The platform also lets coordinators send invites to remote stakeholders for a brainstorming session and capture, categorize, and prioritize ideas according to projects.

Quick Collaborative Prototyping

Figma is engrained in our processes, designers and product owners refine designs and also test the outcomes of the design. Once that's done - these prototypes are accessible to the engineers and QA teams. Marketing can even use this to know what is to come. It is a great cross teams platform.

Pros

I love the collaboration and ease of use across our team. It doesn't matter the technical competence of the user collaboration is possible. This is essential for our workflow as the team spans finance, tech and marketing.

Cons

I wish searching for all the different prototypes were achieved within the prototype screens - but this is minor.

With Figma, we were able to create more collaborative design critiques, more productive developer meetings, and broader file organization.

Pros

The best thing is being able to open Figma ANYWHERE and have all the files synced. In addition to being able to edit everything thru the browser. It is easy to use, similar to what we've always had in Graphic Design. Also, it is the perfect software to work collaboratively with team designers, product managers, and developers. Prototyping is fundamental for the project's stakeholders. Being able to do all this (and with animations) without changing software is amazing.

Cons

It could have more image editor options like removing backgrounds and changing colors, for that I need to use another software and then go back to Figma. It seems that some non-solved problems are left to the community to solve with plugins.

Terrible. Customer service makes my blood boil. The software itself is ok. It's quite complex for an occasional user so I'd not recommend it.

Pros

Probably has some good features, but I haven't used it enough to really say.

Cons

Using Figma is not a core part of my work. However, from time to time clients and team members share wireframes or designs with me. To be able to comment or view these designs, at some stage I have created a FREE account. However, as a freelancer, I worked with many clients over the years and some of them give me a business gmail to use while I have worked with them. Because of this, I am unable to pinpoint when I created the account, everyone I might have collaborated with, and what teams I might be a member of.

To my knowledge, I only made a couple of personal designs on Figma in the past couple of months. Recently my business structure changed, and my g-suite profile (with custom domain) that I created Figma with is now an alias of the G-suite of my new business. Because of this, logging in via Google profile no longer works.

Reaching out to support with the email address that the account was created with is completely unfruitful. The contact person,
[SENSITIVE CONTENT] is behaving like I am trying to fraudulently access a bank account, and it's not possible for me to answer her questions to unlock my account and access.

Some of the questions (not all fit):
- Date of account creation (estimated month/year
- Approximate number of named .fig files owned/created by the account
- Specific names or URLs of 3-5 .fig files
- The names of other collaborators on your teams or files, the file or team you collaborate on
- The last 4 digits and expiry of your payment method

Overall I am happy with figma and I might not switch easily to other tool too soon. They have all thing in one application where me and my team create graphics, extract files in png or jpg or svg. And they have good community online that helps whenever you stuck somewhere and that same community contributes for plugins to make life easy for UX designers.

Pros

I loved the way figma have created their ui as I can use it for website and app prototyping, they provided simple easy to learn tool box which is much similar to other alternative so even if you need to switch to a new prototyping toll you can learn it very easily and start your work.

And compared to other bog alternatives figma have free version to support self learners practice industry level designing easily by seeking their guides.

Cons

I am exploring this tool since 2 years and it amaze me with some of the unique features that I haven't discovered. But I don't like their time consuming real time prototype views if you have lots of screens to made in an app, it makes it too slow to see real time working preview.

Also they should provide different screen size optimization option that works on previewing apps.

I've had a very pleasant experience with Figma. I love how it can replace multiple software which means that I can produce high-quality work with a smaller budget.

Pros

What I love the most about Figma is that I can do graphic design and UI UX design in it. It's very convenient for me to be able to design a quick logo in Figma and also make some wireframes and high fidelity screens for an app. In fact, it is so convenient that I stopped using Illustrator for a few months because Figma was so much quicker and didn't require a lot of RAM to use.

Cons

Figma is really great for UI however the interactions are pretty simple and there is not much room for excitement. A little more movement in interactions would be cooler and would simulate a real app better. I feel like Framer does a better job with interactions than Figma, but one can make better and cleaner designers in Figma.
