About this event

Hi! My name is Nelson and I'll be talking about my experience switching from Sketch to Figma … in the middle of a high-profile Fortune 500 project. Why did I switch? How did our process change? How did the design team, product owners, developers and the client react to the tool change?

Since our design team uses both Sketch and Figma, I'll also share more about how we decide which tool to use for design and why, and some of the pros and cons using one or the other.

This is definitely going to be less of a presentation and more of a Q&A and informal chat. Here's the gameplan which may be subject to change.

[masked] pm --> Networking
[masked] pm --> Presentation with Q&A
[masked] pm --> Clean up

You might consider attending this event if you or your design team is considering switching from Sketch to Figma (or vice versa), and want to hear from a designer who currently has one leg in both camps.
