@belle0hey fwens :wave-pikachu:
hope your day is going amazing! today i did math past papers and had a really exciting meeting for a project that i'm working on :)) also, i figured out some adulting stuff like rent and making meals and stuff :flushded:.
(attached is the design i created for the ama w/ feross – i'm so excited for the event!!)
@abby0For my CS class at school I led a group in using Processing to build an animated GIF. We were inspired by the popular game Wordle to make a GIF of people attempting to solve a wordle. Our animated GIF shows different ways to get to a word. We designed the boards in Figma. Here is the repo: github.com/abbyfischler/swordle and I’m attaching a demo!
@karolina4thank you to everyone who provided suggestions on the figma plan!!
it had been a few months since i had sat down with a new web dev project and i forgot how much i love love love building websites. nothing like having a design vision come to life as an interactive media.
still very rough draft - not mobile-compatible yet and layout and alignment isn't perfect, but i love where this is headed.
@la0made a poster for my club using figma :) ( i did most of this at midnight last night lmao )
@J_cordz7+Today I continued working on the Hack Club workshops translation and learned more about design while using Figma again for a club's friend Birthday! In other things, sadly my freeCodeCamp streak got reset, but the important thing is that I'm learning a lot of new things! Tomorrow I'll have more updates on my projects I'm working on!
@avi0i'm shit at graphic design but i was playing around with figma to see what kind of simple patterns i could make with circles :)
@taylorleehackclub0Schema 2021: Building custom Figma plugins 🔨 And sneak peek into a FigJam widget I am currently working on WIP
@jonah0woo hoo! learning that you can set frames as custom covers for Figma files, I went about designing one for every single project I had. It took a while but was a good excuse to listen to frank sinatra’s entire discography.
@jonah0Attended the third session of UC Berkley’s Figma Decal today. No active designing but learning new things about components and grid guidelines!
@taylorleehackclub0Hi there! :parachute: Long time no see Hack Club. A few life updates… I voted for the first time a few weeks ago, been teaching kids how to code, playing around w/ how to create Figma widgets/plugins and did something kinda wild today… I jumped out of an airplane with my mom! It was a surreal, exciting experience and reminds me how small we are in this vast universe and to continue to do something outside of my comfort zone. I am super grateful and would love to do something like this again!
@jonah0very rough figma mockup I made while giving someone feedback on product. was v happy with myself as I did this in less than 10 minutes.
@jonah0figma practice day 2: replicating a window and website from macOS. Top is original, bottom is my copy.
@jonah0Pen tool practice day 1. Bottom is mine, took me like 20 minutes :’)
@bhumikag2340this is my first post here, but anyways i designed these two screens for a group project thing. design is so mf thrilling i love this with my entire life. figma is so cool too tbh
@nvd0Tried making the basic shape from vecatry then transferring it to figma
@nvd0Made this design in figma but stuck to a bit of basics though #designing #Day6
@nvd0My illustration with figma challenge day #100daychallengewithfigma
@ella3Today I met @riley33chou and @MarinaLee in person :yay: and packed envelopes to mail swag to some people who attended citro hacks! (I've got some figma, replit, and hack club stickers left over so if you want some, DM me - I can probably mail an envelope to you!)
@taylorleehackclub0Config Day 2: Last day! Sad it's over; thank you Figma + the speakers! An incredible conference.:figma:
Some takeaways from multiple talks:
Find joy in making despite "design breakups"
Be intentional with your growth
Universal challenges (Work priorities change. Prioritize innovation/the north star/hiring. Your team will look different when it started, so have a good pulse on morale and perspective. Scaling is not hustling, it's about building elastically and resiliency)
@taylorleehackclub0Attending Config 2021 Day 1 - "Figma is a space for everything and anything"
Key takeaways from this awesome talk by @/ace
Figma is a...
• sketchbook - learn by doing 📝
• a playground - thoughtful chaos :artist:
• home - comfort and purpose 🏡
• studio - bringing something to life ✨
• classroom - learning by teaching 💬
1. Master the toolbox :toolbox:
2. Get others involved 😎
3. Use what you make :figma:
@matthewvandyke080Sketched out some ideas for a portfolio redesign and just got started in figma today. Plus worked on some other braindump tasks
@taylorleehackclub0Registered for Config (Figma's design conference) :figma: and released our school newspaper's first podcast episode you can check out here! It's about personal narratives and it serves as a historical archive of stories from students and other community members at our school. I am still figuring out how to podcast, but it has been a fun process piecing audio together
@sarthak0All of our Mintere sites are generated by components so you can’t do fancy stuff like negative margins and what not 😞 but anyways in Figma, I’m used to just generating a Macbook/Desktop Frame and scaling the height by x to get the exact vh for each section and then I do the fancy stuff with absolute positioning and negative margins.
Fast forward to today and I noticed something super interesting one of our designers (or both idk) which is really nice for componentized design. I might just use this method now cause it’s easier than scaling the height by x and trying to remember the original height. cc @ben
tldr: Use Auto-Layout with individual Macbook/Desktop frames and make your developers happy :)
