The From Figma to WordPress course is here to help you become more efficient by taking your design process from inefficient tools or your page builder of choice and moving to a rapid design platform – Figma!
Spend less time fighting with the wrong tools like your page builder, and use a dedicated design and prototyping tool like Figma.
Once you’ve worked through the initial module to gain a solid understanding of the fundamentals of Figma, you’ll soon be up and running, creating amazing-looking designs with minimal effort.
Smooth collaboration is the key to a streamlined workflow, and using tools like Figma can help guarantee that your workflow is seamless and helps your clients become a part of the whole process.
Making simple changes or global alterations becomes much easier once you’ve agreed on the final design; making it a reality using your WordPress design tools of choice is so much easier.
From Design To Reality
Learn how to design with the end result at the forefront of the process. Taking your design visions to a fully realised and interactive end result has never been easier.
Learn the process I use to achieve this and immediately add your new-found skills to your workflow. You’ll love the flexibility, and your clients will love the ease with which you realise their visions.
Here’s what each module covers
This first module focuses on covering the basics of working in Figma. You’ll learn how to set up your artboard, add frames, configure your colours, configure your typography, set up your 8-point grid, and create reusable components to speed up your design process. Once you’ve learnt the basics of working with Figma, I’ll take you through the complete design process, focusing on building a one-page design for a UI/UX designer.
By the time you’ve worked your way through the entire process of building the design we’ll be using for each of the subsequent modules, you’ll have a solid understanding of the fundamental tools and skills needed and some awesome time-saving ones.
