["The No Bull guide to Figma"] is a magnificent course to solidify the foundation when using Figma. Myself have been using Figma for six months, but the course provided me the moment to be humbled.

I know I know, he looks fake, but I promise you Daniel (as we know him) is a real person!

The course is fantastic. Chuck explains Figma's possibilities very clearly, in an understandable way. And the learning structure just makes sense to me. I like his voice! His course offers perfectly sized learning chuncks in the perfectly arranged flow. Additionally he offers also some of his written articles for those who also like to read.

Frequently Asked Questions

How quickly can you learn Figma?

You can learn how Figma works in a couple of hours, and you can become a good user with just a few days of mastering the essentials: frames, auto layout, and prototype interactions. Of course, it's quicker if you've used similar tools like Sketch, Photoshop, InDesign, or Adobe XD.

I cover all of these topics, with just the right amount of explanation, in my course.

Is it difficult to learn Figma?

If you've used Microsoft Paint or put together a presentation deck, then you can definitely learn Figma! The more experience you have with other design-like tools or web development in HTML and CSS, the better.

Who should learn Figma?

Anyone that wants to create social media posts, mobile app designs, web page designs, or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) will benefit from learning Figma. Even people who prepare diagrams such as Business Analysts, Software Engineers and Developers, Product Managers, and Business Owners and Founders can benefit as FigJam is often used together with Figma.

Designers of all kinds should learn Figma, as it's the most popular tool today. It's more useful for UX, UI, and Product Designers, but it can still be a great tool in the repertoire for Graphic Designers and Visual Designers.
