Vijay wrote a step-by-step guide on making a button with a cool multi-color glowing effect.
I always wanted to mask the gradient to create a button like this in @figma. Finally, I found a solution. Here, Sharing the behind-the-scenes and video tutorials to create this cool button.😍 pic.twitter.com/ldzOSVAodb
Vijay challenges himself by limiting his tools only to primitives while working on this icon. It’s quite amazing what can be done by mixing imagination with 29 ellipses, 8 rectangles, and 1 frame.
Friday, Figma & Fun 🧪 Challenge: Create something cool with primitive shape only. Here is an app icon using 29 Ellipses, 8 Rectangles, and 1 Frame with added shadows and noise using the NT plugin. Shared @figma file and Behind the scene below. Enjoy 😍 pic.twitter.com/wcVeCOjGKQ
After following Vijay’s work for a few years, I enjoyed reading this interview and learning about the man behind the art. He speaks about his background, using Figma for realistic illustrations, and his creative process.
Vijay is experimenting with inner shadows in Figma. Despite a limit of only 8 shadows, it’s usually enough to create a 3D effect on any shape.
Experimenting with inner shadows in @figma. I found that if you use drop shadow or inner shadow on any layer, the limit is 8. In spite of this, it is enough to make any shape like 3D. One secret shared below ☺️. pic.twitter.com/da9sz9fLv0
Vijay keeps teasing Rogie’s new plugin Noise & Texture. You’ll notice that it’s currently in beta and requires a code to unlock, but if you look closely at this thread you may find one.
Last night, when I was bored in a meeting 😌, I made some noise in @figma using the NT plugin @rogie. With this pluign we can create cool metal, wood, and many other texture by simply combining with layer mode. Shared some tips below 🧶 pic.twitter.com/CGEw0ACebE
As always, Vijay Verma pushes the limits of Figma with a fun experiment based on Auto Layout and an animated prototype. Great to see how easy it was to build and control.
Another fun experiment using @figma prototype. I made this small head rig last week. Creating this was lot of fun 😍. By using cavas as masks and combining with autolayout, I created this so quickly. Sharing behind the scene below 🧶 pic.twitter.com/funSf3WtuD
Yes, this is @figma. Simple halftone effects can be easily added to your photos and illustrations to give them a retro look. Another experimenting with @rogie NT plugin. Sharing techniques here 🧶 pic.twitter.com/X43m4oXSWg
”Loreum ipusm for logos. Insert dummy logos of companies into your Figma or FigJam file quickly. The plugin also includes 194 flags of countries as well as popular brand logos.” Don’t miss Vijay’s Twitter thread of a story and details behind this plugin.
As always, Vijay is pushing the limits of illustration possibilities in Figma. The new artwork from the Encanto movie has 2,500+ vectors and took him about 12 hours. Don’t miss the thread with some details.
