The more you work in Figma,
the more your work gets seen.

By learning Figma, non-designers can not only improve their ability to collaborate with their design counterparts but can also elevate their work and visibility within their organization. With Figma's real-time collaboration and feedback, non-designers can work alongside their team to create and iterate on projects even when they're not discussing design work. The more non-designers work in Figma, the more their work will be seen, and the more they'll be able to contribute to the success of their organization.

Finally, Figma is for you.

Product managers, researchers, and engineers often work together to create solutions that bring their ideas to life. But traditional design tools have not always been accessible to non-designers, making collaboration and communication between team members difficult. It also creates an uneven playing field where single individuals sometimes have sole access to a design source of truth.

That's where Figma comes in. Figma enables professionals from all backgrounds to ideate, create, and share work in real-time.

It's not just for design

One of Figma's key features is Auto Layout, which enables easy resizing and rearranging of components. In addition to being a powerful design tool, Auto Layout can make it easier for non-designers to create clean and polished assets for any use case. For example, Auto Layout can be used to create tables, flowcharts, decision trees, one-pagers, decision logs, approval tables, and any other type of documentation that's essential to your work.

At Figma for the Rest of Us, we believe that product managers, researchers, and engineers deserve to be empowered by Figma just as much as their design counterparts. Our workshops are designed to teach the fundamentals and advanced techniques of Figma through exercises that are based on the subject matter of our audience. Whether you're a beginner who has never used Figma before or an experienced user who wants to learn new tricks and workflows, our workshops are tailored to your needs.

I want my team to spend time thinking about high level UX problems, rather than mindlessly repeating busy work. Figma helps them do that.
