Figma – Ultimate Powerful UX/UI Design Tool
Why do you need a performant UX/UI Design Tool? If you are remotely connected to the UX/UI design world you probably heard debates between design platforms such as Figma or Sketch. There are a lot of similarities between the two but Figma has been slightly ahead in the battle to become the ultimate powerful UX/UI prototyping tool that gives designers endless possibilities. For starters Figma is a cloud-based tool where you can create UX/UI prototyping, perfectly designed for sleek collaboration between teams.
In this article we will explore the benefits of Figma and why it became so popular in the past few years.
Figma works both in windows and mac operating systems
One of the biggest benefits of Figma is that it works on both Mac and Windows operating systems which is a big plus in comparison with other UX/UI Design platforms, such as Sketch (that only works on Mac).
Often designers use Mac and developers use windows which becomes tricky when collaborating with each other, Figma solves this problem and becomes a much more reliable and collaborative tool to be used on a bigger scale.
Figma allows collaboration within its own platform
What happens with most UX/UI Design tools is that often the designer needs to use third party tools for collaboration purposes, such as invision. With Figma however, you can add team members and make comments within the Figma platform itself which becomes a lot easier and allows users to stick with only one platform/tool rather than go back and forth between the two.
Figma has a slack integration
With the Slack integration it becomes easier to receive notifications on any activity with regards your Figma UX/UI Design project. Whenever someone comments or edits the Figma project, the slack notifies the users so everybody is aware of any new updates.
This feature creates a much quicker collaboration between team members and improves communication in a more efficient way.
Figma UX/UI Design Tool is everything in one place
Figma also does not require third party tools to create interactive prototyping which is another big advantage in comparison to any other UX/UI Design tool in the market. Invision is usually the third party tool to be used for these particular tasks, but with Figma the user can both collaborate with a team and create interactive transitions in presentation style (clicks, hovers, other effects ) between pages within its own platform.
