What is Figma?

Figma is a software programme for macOS and Windows that is vector based. It is referred to as the medium of digital design, and its primary usage is a leading tool for UI and UX designers.

Figma as a Design Tool

From pixel-perfect icons and scalable vector graphics, to complete user flows and interactive prototypes, Figma is the ideal place to design, build, test and iterate.

Key point:As Figma is browser based it uses real time collaboration like Google Docs, which makes designing simple. By only opening a shared file, a design lead can check in to see what the team is designing in real time, and can edit simultaneously.
