Hi y’all, I’m Bruno Figueiredo and you can find me under @bfigas_ on Twitter, and bfigas everywhere else. I’m a Community Advocate for Figma and I currently lead the Brand & Creatives team at OutSystems. Oh, and adding to this I’m also an Admin of the freshest forum experience in the block!

I’m Portuguese, and am currently stationed in sunny Lisbon :sunny: :beers: :beach_umbrella: :bridge_at_night:

Outside this beautiful community, I tend to be found either drawing, snapping photos, playing the latest indie games, or simply traveling (when there isn’t, you know… a pandemic out there) and, if you catch me in a good day, I’ll probably be creating some tunes (although I never share them).

Feel free to ping me in a PM if you have any questions about the community, or simply wanna chat :wink:

Have a nice one! :wave:

Hello beautiful people! I’m Gleb. Learn more about me and leave something nice in the Figma guestbook on my website: https://gleb.sexy/ :heart:

I’ve been a daily Figma user since 2016, and as an active community member I answered more than 5000 questions about Figma already, so now I know pretty much everything about the tool. I’m also a developer so I made multiple tools and plugins for Figma. The most popular are Figma Link Shortener, Blend and Master.

Currently I’m continuing to develop Figma plugins full-time! And I wanna keep helping people in the Figma community, so I’m gonna be moderating this forum and answering your questions in the topics here, sharing tips and tricks.

hello all :wave:
I’m Masha, designer and community advocate from Boston, MA.

My two favorite things to do in Figma are coming up with sleek ways to set up components and finding new creative uses for the tool.

Whenever I’m not moving pixels, I love to move around - specifically running, boxing, and simply going on long walks :leaves: I also enjoy learning languages and would love to practice Italian or German with native speakers here. (I can teach you use some Russian in return!)

Hello friends! My name is Igor, designer and community advocate from Moscow, RU. I have been working in Figma since the very first days of its appearance, I have designed an insane amount of products in it. Opening Figma every day, I enjoy my work. The most frequent thing I do in it is the design of design systems, complex products and mobile applications. I consider my knowledge of Figma at a very high level, I will help the forum and write interesting articles. Thanks everyone.

Hi, all! Great to be here :wink: I’m currently working as a Design Lead at the software company Mono (Croatia), also I’m president of Osijek Software City association (which promotes IT sector), and not forget, Community Advocate for FoF, Osijek.

I had the honor to work, organize (and create) the local community projects Digital Design Academy, DIO community, and Design of Digital Interactions (with the Academy of Arts in Osijek) in Osijek, to uplift and help young designers to stand up on their feet, learn, meet each other on meetups, and eventually — get a job.

Fun facts about me: I used to live in a squat, skateboarding a lot, visiting a lot of hardcore/punk gigs, and hitchhiking around the country, and ofc chased by the wild dogs doing that :smile:

Twitter: @tomic_mihael

P.S. Forgot to mention I love cooking and writing about it on my blog (foodara.net, Croatian only), but there’s my IG account (@mihael_tomic) with many meals I cook. Thanks @Trucy_Phan for reminding me of that part. :+1:
