How To Present In Figma

If you want to make a strong impression on your clients or coworkers with your design skills, utilizing Figma for presentations can greatly enhance your success. With its powerful features, Figma streamlines the process of showcasing your creative projects. This blog post will guide you through the necessary steps to effectively present your designs using Figma.

Step 1: Prepare Your Figma File

Before you get started with the presentation, ensure that your Figma file is organized. This means naming your layers properly and using frames to segment different parts of your project. This will not only make your presentation smoother but also make it easier for others to understand your design process.

Step 2: Access the Presentation View

To start presenting your Figma designs, navigate to the top-right corner of your Figma window. Here, you’ll find the Present button. Clicking this will open your active frame in a new window, ready for presentation.

Step 3: Use Prototype Settings

Figma offers a multitude of prototype settings to enhance your presentations. You can specify the device type, adjust the transition between frames, and even include interactions. To access these settings, click on Prototype in the right-side properties panel.

Step 4: Navigating Through Your Presentation

While presenting, you can navigate through your frames using the arrow keys. If you’ve included interactions in your prototype, you can click on the areas with interactions to navigate. You can also use the Escape key to exit the presentation view at any time.

Step 5: Share Your Presentation

Figma also allows you to share your presentation with others. Simply click on the Share button at the top-right of the presentation window and copy the link. You can control whether the viewers can only view or also comment on your designs.

Remember, practice makes perfect. The more you use Figma for presenting, the more comfortable and proficient you will become. Happy presenting!
