Talk #1: Idan Arbel // How we stopped working with Photoshop and switched to Figma

In the world of complex interface design Photoshop has stopped being the right tool for a while. Now we PC users can finally switch to the right tool. Idan will talk about how his team switched to Figma and started working right, fast, and efficient. He will present one of our projects, how it is built, from menus to dialogs, pages, templates and eventually a design system. Practical methods for dealing with icons, components
and constraints.

About Idan:
Father of 3, Idan is the owner of Pixel Wrapped a boutique ux/ui design
studio located in Kfar Saba.

Talk #2:
Eric Hinz // Building a design system by accident (lecture in English)

As designers we always try to optimise our workflow. But what happens if the new tool you use, changes not only the way you work but also the way you think? Our team at Tamooz UX will reflect on the first major project we built in Figma. We’ll share insights and experiences of our mid-project move to Figma, the challenges we encountered and the lessons
we learned.

About Eric:
Senior Product & UX designer at Tamooz | design & beyond.
His focus is on working on the intersection between physical & digital things. When he's not jetting between Berlin & Tel Aviv he's happy to engage in endless discussions about geek stuff.

*Show & Tell - Open Stage
2 quick talks from the audience (5 min. each) - This is the place to brag on your latest masterpiece (in Figma, of course) & maybe get to know
a new colleague.
Although we are not an official group of Figma, our community is based on the principles of their community. We hope that it will become a tradition to open & share our work with our peers.
