About this event

We've missed you and hope you're staying safe!

Figma Singapore is back with another meetup, this one we think, will help all of us prepare for the "new reality" we're living in. We're also going "Remote" and hosting this meetup on Zoom.

Get your Figma & Zoom accounts ready: Join us for some fun interactive games in a shared Figma file, learn about remote communication, building your remote muscle and remote user research.

It's on a Friday so BYOB, sit back, relax and be surprised by the multitude of things we can all learn from each other, even when apart. ๐Ÿฅบ

We also have a brand new section on Mentorships and Jobs as we explore what we can do to help each other during this period and beyond. ๐Ÿ’˜If you are looking for mentors or jobs, or want to help, don't miss this section! (Pst, we have a special guest for this too ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Zoom link to be updated.
