Figma is one of the most powerful UI and UX Design tool that can even run in your browser. Figma’s power is hidden in its being cross-platform and its Collaboration feature where you can easily collaborate with other Designers and Developers. It works seamlessly on Windows and Mac Operating Systems with a Desktop Application. In recent times, it is one of the most powerful and popular User Interface Design App due to being a Cloud based App (saves your file version history) and its FREE to use too
This course will teach you all about User Interface Designing and also adding interactivity to your Designs with powerful prototyping features of Figma. First, we will learn about the basic tools, common keyboard shortcuts and familiarizing ourselves with the Figma’s interface.
Once you have solid basics, we will move on to Auto Layout, Responsive design and few advance things like viewing your Prototype live on an actual Mobile Device. I will show you everything step by step.
We will design together the User Interface and then the prototype of a “Recipe App called YUMMS” from the scratch and make it into a pro level design by multiplying Artboards, using reusable Styles and Components.

started my Freelance Design Career 10+ years ago and learned everything
the hard way myself. I went from scratch to end up working for
FORTUNE 500 companies like INTEL, PANASONIC and Coca Cola.
I love to simplify things about UX and UI Design when I teach to make it easier for my students
Working with Art Directors from Coca Cola and Project Managers from UK, I learned a lot in short period of time.
Improved User Experience of UK GP Tools Mobile App, few Games and e-commerce websites and created new Design patterns for showing passwords safely in password fields
Worked from App Icon Design to App UI Design, from wire-frames,
prototypes and Mockups Design. I have a hunger of perfecting User
Interface from all aspects
I am multi-talented person who have won One Gold Medal, won a nation-wide Poster Design competition from PANASONIC and won many Landing Page design contests on 99designs.
Worked with Clients all over the world mostly from USA, Australia, UK, and United Arab Emirates while learning a lot on how to deal with clients while freelancing and how to present your work to them
My ultimate aim is to make more Awesome UI Designers and ease the pain of learning from new comers in this field of UI Design
