Why should you learn Figma?

Figma is great for people who are new to design because it’s free and works everywhere (including computer labs). Unlike other design tools you don’t need a masters degree, the features are simple and intuitive so you spend more time learning how to design instead of how to use a design tool.

This real-time, all-in-one environment is a boon for design professionals, who have long relied on cobbled-together workflows involving multiple programs, plug-ins, and cloud services.
