What is Figma? Why do we need it in UX Design ? Can we learn Figma sitting at home for free ? will know in this video ..MUSIC ..

We understood in the old video that what is the difference between UX and UI ? UX i.e User Experience is a very big Subject and UI is a part of it.

There are many things you can do on Figma but in the beginning the primary use of Figma is to build UI ! So if youre building an app, or building a website so before Development The entire design of that app and website is formed.

Which is made on Figma.

At the end of the video, I will share 3 such resources with you By using which you can become very strong in Figma So make sure you watch this video till the end ! So lets answer some common questions that come in the mind of every beginner Do I need an expensive laptop for using Figma ? Many people ask, Do we need to buy a MacBook? Or need to buy a laptop that has lot of RAM or a specific Graphic card? There is absolutely no need for these things Figma is a free software that runs on the cloud So Figma works very smoothly on almost every laptop Do I Need Coding, Sketching, Graphic Design, Computer Science Degree, Do I need to learn anything from this ? Absolutely No ! If you have never done sketching in life Never Painted Never did Photoshop, Graphic Designing or anything...

You can still start learning this subject This subject is completely different from everything that has been done before Yes Ofcourse when you design a UI, it is important to have an aesthetic sense which will come very easily with practice Then comes the next question i.e.

Theres a lot of stuff inside Figma too, so what should we learn first ? See, there are 7 things that you absolutely have to learn, You cannot skip this Now dont be afraid to hear their names, Dont worry, we will cover everything These are, 1. Constraints 2. Components 3. Variants 4. Auto Layout 5. Styles 6. Libraries and 7. Prototyping You can learn everything very easily from Figmas youtube channel Now going ahead, I will tell you a playlist from where you can learn all these things for free Trust me it is not as complicated as you think :) Next question comes that how much time does it take to learn this Figma ? Figma is actually a very creative software, So there is a lot that you can do but in the beginning, I have told you those 7 topics It will take you around 50-60 hrs to learn those 7 topics right now,I am going to tell you resources If you use those 3 resources properly and if you invest 50-60 hrs on it and study it you will very easily know the basics of Figma and you will be prepared to make your first UI.

It is a very simple tool, you just have to invest enough time and learn from the right sources if you get the right resource and if you invest time in it nothing can stop you Then a question comes in the end that will I get the job of UX designer only after learning Figma? Absolutely not on Figma you make UI only and to be honest Figma is also a very deep subject learning Figma is a different matter, and in Figma creating Designs systems, building actual apps, scaling those apps.

Scaling up means you built for mobile first, built for ios, built for android, built for the web There is a lot of complexity in all these things so by just learning Figma you cannot expect to get a Job By learning Figma you have understood the tool but still the subject is yet to be studied So, learning Figma is chapter 1 after this chapter 1, there are various chapters that you have to complete but you dont have to worry about it because on this same channel, I have already uploaded a 15 episode free course in Hindi and in English from Beginning to End I have shared everything I knew, my all experiences,all valuable tips,all resources So if you are interested in UX design so you can watch that course I will put the link in the description There is one notion document where I have collected and kept all the resources So it would be very easy for you to understand that what you have to learn How to make a portfolio?
