Join AIGA Boston in partnership with the American Graphics Institute (AGI) for a workshop to build and practice your Figma skills. In this intermediate session, you will better understand how your organization can make the design team iteration and creation process efficient using Figma and other UI and animation design tools.
Build skills to bring imaginative designs to polished prototypes to sell your ideas to clients and internal teams. Learn to build a sharable prototype from scratch and get best practices and details on producing your file for the dev team. You will also see how a design system is built from scratch, applied to prototypes, shared, and maintained so that you and your teams can stay on the same page.
