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.

Best for UX and collaboration

I was skeptical about switching from Sketch to Figma because Sketch worked just fine. However, when I saw how the collaboration works and how easy it is for the developers to build websites designed in Figma, I changed my mind.

Pros

Figma takes collaboration to the next level: our designers, project managers, and clients comment, ask questions, and correct layouts at the same time. In addition, you can limit the status of each participant without worrying that someone will disturb the harmony in the design. All versions and changes are stored in Figma and you can "roll back" to the right one at any time. I no longer need to store dozens of files on my computer and remember which file had the design with the element that the customer asked to remove and now wants to return.

Cons

Figma is great for web design, UX/UI, and even making presentations. However, it doesn't fully replace Adobe Creative Cloud, you will still need to use other design software.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe XD

Reasons for Choosing Figma

Because Figma is better for feedback and real-time collaboration. Besides, it's available on all platforms, which my clients love.

Switched From

Sketch

Reasons for Switching to Figma

Figma is free, multi-platform, highly functional, and just perfect.

the best design tool for teams

As we are working on the same project at the same time the Figma cloud service it's really helping us being more productive.

Pros

The thing that I like the most about Figma it's the cross-platform support: You can use Figma on your Mac, pc, linux or even a browser. The second thing is the cloud service. Every changes you made it's updated automatically and every person on the team can see what you are changing in real-time

Cons

The thing that I like the lest about Figma it's the fact that it's not battery-efficient on the Mac compared to alternatives and it does not work well on browser. Moreover it's not very easy to use.

Figma is Freedom

Reviewed on 3/12/2022

Pros

Figma has a lot of features and is easy to use, a beginner can use it easily without any issues.

Figma requires an internet connection, due to bad internet in my country it's a bit of a problem. Would have loved it if they have an offline manner of saving works
