“This workshop will be a deep dive into the prototyping features in Figma. We will cover many of the basic frame-to-frame navigation prototypes for devices, and touch upon some of the more advanced capabilities that you can unlock with video, interactive components, and sections.”
“We will leverage Figma’s native prototyping capabilities to demonstrate how to collaboratively design slide decks, as well as utilize FigJam’s whiteboards to present ideas while others follow along and give feedback. You can use these techniques to give interactive presentations, engage your audience (or students), and communicate your content clearly and compellingly.”
“In this workshop we will cover how to apply motion and animation when prototyping with Figma. We will cover concepts like transitions, delays, timing, smart animate, and interactive components.”
