We can explain Figma as a prototyping tool which is primarily a web-based vector graphic editor, with added features given by desktop applications that makes it accessible on Windows and macOS. The best part of using Figma is that you don’t need to download and install any external software. Figma being web-based continually updates itself, and voids your need to save and organise files, as all the work performed is on a cloud. Figma proves itself useful for large size projects and runs smoothly in comparison to other vector graphic editing tools.
At Boffin Coders, our designers have the experience to work as a team on a project, possible with Figma’s feature that allows multiple people to collaborate to a file in real-time. This feature also allows our clients to track the progress in real-time by clicking the avatar of the person currently working and look at their screen. You can not only look at the screen but add comments about any necessary changes required. Figma provides a platform where developers and clients can discuss and resolve issues sooner than later.
There remains no need to defragment the project, and multiple people can access the whole project at the same time. Figma works on frames rather than artwork, which means smaller frames can be nested inside a parent frame and designed, positioned, and constrained relative to their parent frame. You can divide a screen using frames into separate content areas and then bunch required features inside those sections. It also helps to get a clear UI blueprint of the design and well-defined measurements of the individual segments. It makes making changes to the document a lot easier as when you are not using symbols then you can make changes to a section with ease without detaching it from the parent frame. Figma doesn’t face the issue of renaming every component separately, as when you rename a master component later it gets updated on all instances. Figma shows no need to name components every time as it creates a list of components as thumbnails which is easier to find whenever you need to access one. Also, there is no need to return to previous pages when you need to switch between pages as the parent components are available for edit in a larger view. Figma has a great, evolved, User Interface that gives an easy-to-use environment to create an interactive design.
