Applications for Spring 2023 are now open at https://bit.ly/figmadecal-applysp23 - apps are due Friday, January 27, 11:59 PM.
Introduction to Figma is an opportunity for any student to learn Figma — a powerful, free-to-use design tool — and gain the skills, community, and confidence to bring any idea to life.
Through the course, you will learn the mechanics of Figma, basic design theory, and unconventional ways to apply the skills you pick up during the semester. Although Figma is known for its UI/UX design capabilities, you can leverage it for anything that you desire!
There are no prerequisites or prior knowledge requirements for this course. It is intended for students who are new to Figma and design as a whole. We encourage students who have little to no experience with the tool to apply.
