👋 Introduce yourself!

Hi all,
Good to be part of yet another community. I’ve been using creative apps since the early 90s so Figma is quite familiar in terms of logic has its own framework and very rapid updates that require some adaptation.
I am a product and strategic designer with experience in industrial and digital product design (you can call it UX if you like -). Worked in various countries and now live in Sydney Australia.
Take care…
Micha

Hi all, Figma has impressed me since I found it about 5 years ago. I’m glad to be using it more, lately. I’ve been a lead designer and lately do more research, I’ve played violin to pro level, lived in a few countries, and know Spanish pretty well. I’d love to work in other countries so I could live across the pond, again.

Hey @kane_hogan,

FigJam is a white boarding tool. It’s not meant to build prototypes, which is why there is no button to add additional pages. You want to use Figma for prototyping. Here’s more info:

Hello, I am Sonia, working for a US company as Senior UI/UX Designer remotely located in Spain, earlier working in Finland (but originally German). I am coming from the Adobe Illustrator world in my previous job within same company and Figma is very new to me. I am still feeling lost, admire the ease but struggle with understanding dependencies. Now my main tasks are with the company’s design system.

I’m Samir shah from India. Basically, I’m a front-end developer. Although, web designing is something I keep exploring. I like to share and know about various design-related resources, plugins, articles, etc.

Been using Figma for product designing and personally, I’m a huge fan of it.
Happy to be here.:star_struck:

Hello Figmanier …
I am Micha, live in Germany. I started in 1988 with graphics on the PC and then switched to Apple. For 7 years now I work as an in-house designer at JobLeads. With Figma, I have found the optimal layout tool (I am not a developer ) for web design. I am very happy overall.

But there are some things that I find rather cumbersome, and many functions and options that I miss. I’m sure I’ll find many tips and workarounds here. For this, I say many thanks in advance :wink:

Hi, I’m Marc, a guy from Barcelona living in Helsinki, Finland. (many people ask why, you too? xD) I’m a service designer and COO at Attractive.ai. Figma has a vibrant and interesting community, and I’d love to help it grow bigger and work more efficiently while using Figma. At Attractive.ai we want to make the web more usable and remove all the frustration and frictions that everyday causes headaches to millions of people.

I am curious to know how frustrating it is for you designers to see your designs being “destroyed” during implementation phase, not realizing the full power of their designs. Is this still an issue/problem?

I am also wondering if getting immediate feedback and UX rating/readiness score of your designs while you design would be something interesting for the Figma and global design community.

If you can shed some light in any of these questions, I’ll be eternally grateful!

Meanwhile, if I can be of any help, please ask away and I’ll do my best!

Cheers!
Marc
