Figma Design Meetup - Shindigma

San Francisco

About this event

Date: September 28th

Join us for our quarterly Shindigma: a speaker series focused on different parts, practices and possibilities within the design and development community.

We focus so much in the tech industry on the polished and shiny work we do but rarely do we ever show the work and time we needed to get us where we are today.

This quarter, Figma is hosting a lightning talk session about the struggles that four designers faced along their individual journey and what they’re working toward today.
