Join Brian Wood for an in-depth discussion in this video Set up your first file in Figma, part of Figma for UX Design.
- [Instructor] The first thing we wanna do…now that we've got the font set up,…is we wanna create our first file.…This is gonna be our first design or app or web…or whatever we're creating in here.…So as long as you're on the figma.com website…and you're logged in, you look in the upper left here,…you're gonna see that we have a plus which means new file.…Now you're gonna find this in a lot of places.…You're gonna see over here in the menu,…you'll see New File, a lot of places to get this done.…But go ahead and click on the plus…and all it's gonna do is it's gonna create a brand new file…that doesn't have a lot going on, okay.…
It's a little weird actually,…but you'll see the full workspace out here.…You'll see we have our toolbar up here,…you can see all the different tools.…We have over on the left, this is actually layers currently…and pages, we can do pages in here.…Down here you'll actually see we can work with components,…these are similar to symbols and their reusable content…like a button you want to use 16 times…
