UX Posters

UX THEATRE  by Tanya S (Twitter @spydergrrl) created this amazing poster that summarizes how many companies fake UX, or at least have the wrong understanding of how to properly practice user entered design. I thought it was worth sharing so other designers can see they are not alone with this common problem. Tanya also gives some good suggestion how to resolve these issues in you organization. Of you use or repost this poster please give credit to Tanya S (Twitter @spydergrrl).

Useful Figma Links

PLUGINS:

  • Master - This is a paid plugin but extremely helpful for your component development and maintenance. This is the only plugin that I have found that helps you reconnect disconnected plugins.  The Author Gleb is one of the most active plugin developers in the Figma community and a super nice guy. 

  • Styler -  help you generate your styles

  • Themer - A brilliant plugin created by Tom Lowry that lets you quickly switch your designs between different theme's like light mode and dark mode.  This plugin also forces best practices to set up your design environment in the same way that your dev team would do it if your application offered this flexibility to your users. 

  • Nisa Text Splitter -  Ever wanted to convert your paragraph text into a list? How about sorting your list? This plugin is amazing. 

  • Autoflow -  Turn any frame into a flow diagram. The most awesome thing about this plugin is that the lines stay connected when you move your frames. 

  • Google Sheets Sync - This allows you to populate a Google sheet with data that you can then use to populate your Figma components. Works great on product cards. 

  • Sorter - Quicksort by name or layer location, and be able to ever order.

  • Remove BG - Removes background of images
