If you’re a beginner, maybe even a complete stranger to Figma, and you didn’t even know that Figma existed a week ago, then this is the course for you. 

You need to have a properly structured, concise course to guide you through the entirety of Figma as a design tool, but you also need to have that real-world and practical education.

You have gaps in your end-to-end Figma workflow

Is there something you dread completing on Figma simply because you don’t know how to do it? 

Chances are, there are gaps in your end-to-end workflow, and the best way to discover where those gaps are, and start filling them in, is with practical Figma lessons. When it comes to Figma, the best way to identify and resolve any knowledge gaps is to put theory into practice with valuable and practical lessons that take you every step of the way.

You are transitioning from Adobe XD or Sketch to Figma

Maybe you’re already a UX designer with a few projects up your sleeve. Perhaps you’re looking to upskill, or your dream job requires you to be a Figma-pro. Maybe you just discovered the Figma community and can’t resist joining in. 

If you’re a designer still using Sketch or Adobe XD, and want to switch to Figma, you’re in the right place.

What makes this Figma course different?

It gets you job-ready

The beauty of the Ultimate Figma Masterclass course is that it’s been specifically designed to get you job-ready through a real-world project.

As a designer or aspiring designer, you may be asking, “why should I learn Figma?” We believe you should learn how to use Figma because Figma is the most used tool in the game. 

In a survey conducted at the close of 2021, found Figma holds reign as the primary tool for designers. Of those surveyed, 54% used Figma as their primary tool, with Adobe XD coming in at 10%, Sketch at 3%, and InVision at 4%. 

Being skilled at using the most-used tool in the market gives you a considerable advantage—skills and support wise. When more people are using a tool, there’s more support, more troubleshooting, and even more opportunities for collaboration. It’s kind of like learning a universal design language.

To help get you job-ready with the right hard skills, this Figma Masterclass has practical lessons, actionable step-by-step processes, and the right framework to help you design the right way for real-world projects.

You’ll learn to prototype and animate perfectly for users and stakeholders alike. You will be able to manage design projects and navigate working with developers efficiently with ease. The course helps to hone your communication skills to explain clearly, in detail, step-by-step to every client your design’s “why.”

To help you work with developers, the Figma Masterclass gives you an insight into all the tools from a developer's perspective. Get ready for effortless preparation of files and handoff, and learn how to interpret and apply design feedback.

Free Figma presentation templates provided

The Ultimate Figma Masterclass helps banish pre-meeting panic by giving you access to real-world design presentation templates and workflows.

With these templates, you will be able to implement them directly into your workflow and start presenting your design work like a pro.

You’ll also learn the subtle art of working with and not against your team and clients to help make a design more than just something good to look at. No more awkward conversations and no more design disasters.

If you’re someone who panics thinking, “how do I even prepare for a design presentation?” then look forward to The Designership’s exact blueprint of how to present and walkthrough designs. Thanks to the course and your ability to understand and explain the “why,” presenting will be as easy as your ABCs. 

It teaches you the “why” behind UI design

Plenty of Figma courses on the market can teach you how to design decently. Still, only the Ultimate Figma Masterclass gives you practical lessons and templates to help you beyond the classroom. 

To help you become a unicorn UI designer, The Ultimate Figma Masterclass teaches you the “why” behind every design decision. 

From the technical reasoning behind Autolayout and it’s relationship with Flexbox to building a systematic and scalable typography scale. Everything you learn will be backed by evidence.

The best way to manage a Figma file

There’s nothing worse than a chaotic workspace, and it’s the first thing to trip up rookie or poorly trained designers. The Ultimate Figma Masterclass aims to stop messy design spaces once and for all. 

This course teaches you how to set up and manage a Figma file in a real-world project. You will also access a starter file that you can kickstart every project with. Most importantly, you will also learn to manage design feedback while still keeping your files well organized.

You’ll learn how to build a Figma design system and UI kit from scratch

The Ultimate Figma Masterclass really does give you all the essential blueprints. This course will provide you with a clear and complete step-by-step guide to building a Figma Design System and UI Kit using advanced techniques. All from scratch, and all in a way that you can do time and time again. 

You will learn everything from applying front-end development principles to the planning and managing Figma variants for large-scaled components.

You wouldn’t believe the number of newbie designers who enroll in our course and are gobsmacked at the time they save thanks to our time-saving tips and tricks and Design System. 

Designers who don’t use a Design System repeatedly recreate the same individual component from scratch and don’t use AutoLayout to its full potential. All this results in is a headache, inconsistency, and time wasted most of the time. 

Our goal is to help you learn how to create scalable Design Systems from scratch to help improve the consistency of your UI design. No more scalability issues, no more fiddly designs that just won’t behave, and no more hours lost trying to make your webpage or app work. 

For beginners and some experienced designers, AutoLayout is the toughest nut to crack when it comes to Figma. You might have also seen (or just might be) a designer who does everything they can to avoid AutoLayout. They find themselves manually resizing everything to fit into tablets and mobile views.

In The Ultimate Figma Masterclass, we teach you how to use and master AutoLayout so that you no longer run for the hills at the thought of resizing. It’s ideal for those struggling to get their heads around AutoLayout or hoping to create full-blown scaleable Design Systems.
