Figma is a web-based graphics and user interface design application where multiple users can collaborate on the same project in real-time. You can use Figma for a variety of design purposes, including creating wireframes for websites, designing and testing mobile app interfaces, prototyping designs, and much more. The best thing about Figma is that the majority of its features are available completely free of charge.

What is Figma?

Figma is a collaborative web application developed by Figma, Inc since 2016 for creating interface designs with some additional offline features. Figma's real strength relies on its user interface, user experience, and elaborate collaborative workflow.

What are the key features of Figma?

  • Collaboration: Figma makes online collaboration easier and more productive than ever before. Often referred to as the Google Docs of design tools, Figma collaborators can change design elements on the fly and get real-time feedback from other project members. Figma is a cross-platform application, meaning that projects are accessible from Windows and Mac computers, as well as directly from the web browser.
  • Design: Bring your ideas to life thanks to the powerful set of vector tools available in Figma. Every new design starts with a frame, which is the page where your design will live. From here, you can add and customize a grid to help you maintain the alignment of the elements in your frame. Thanks to the shape tool you can draw boxes, squares, lines, circles, and more. The text tool allows you to add text in every imaginable font type, color, and size. You can add labels to your design elements and place them into groups for easier recognition, for example, navbar, footer, banner, etc. By adding the auto layout property to your components, Figma automatically resizes its properties according to its content and the dimensions of your frame, allowing you to make responsive designs.
  • Create toolkits: Every single element created by you or your team members can be saved inside a toolkit, which is a collection of reusable elements. This way you can save valuable time when starting with a new wireframe, as you and other collaborators will have access to previously created UI elements, such as buttons, cards, avatars, logos, text fields, etc.
  • Prototyping: With Figma's prototyping tools you can create interactive flows that explore how a user may interact with your website or mobile application. Prototypes are the perfect tool to preview user flows, get feedback from stakeholders, and test your product before launching it into production.
  • Templates: Speed up your design workflow by choosing one of the countless premade templates created by professionals and other members of the Figma community. There are all kinds of templates available, including website templates, Instagram post templates, and even complete UI kits.
  • FigJam: The newest Figma feature is called FigJam. It is an online whiteboard that can be used by teams to brainstorm, exchange, draft, and document their ideas. FigJam includes things such as sticky notes, diagrams, user flows, and mood boards.

How to use Figma?

You will find many useful tutorials, and a dedicated getting started guide on the official website.

  1. All you need to start using Figma is a PC or laptop with a fast and stable internet connection. When you launch Figma for the first time, you will be asked to register a free account.
  2. Once your account is set up, you can start working on your first project immediately. You can either create a project from scratch or pick one of the carefully pre-designed templates. On the official Figma YouTube page, you will be able to find a broad range of tutorials for beginner, intermediate, and advanced users. 

Is Figma free?

The Starter subscription of Figma is a free-to-use plan that allows you to work on a maximum of 3 Figma and 3 FigJam files simultaneously. If you are a heavy user you can go for Figma Professional, allowing you to work on an unlimited number of files and projects. Figma Professional sets you back $15 per month or $12 per month when billed annually. There is also an Organizational plan, which costs $45 per editor monthly.

Is Figma safe?

Figma is safe to use, but you need to know that it may collect some of your data. We recommend you check its Privacy Policy before using it.

Is Adobe XD better than Figma?

First, Figma offers more cloud space by default, as Adobe XD's Starter plan allows for one shared file and 2 GB of storage, while this is unlimited with Figma. Also, collaboration is less effective with Adobe XD because you design in one place but share in another, comments are in a separate experience, and changes from different co-editors need to be merged manually. On the other hand, Figma is web-based, so your design file is a simple web link and a unique collaborative space for your team.
