How to drive brand experiences with the latest from Figma
Figma launched its biggest update to date last June, answering the needs of thousands of designers around the world. And, of course, ours as well. Because its new features turn around the way we design brand and product experiences, and reimagine the way design and development teams work together. The goal? To create more powerful digital products with greater business impact.
Want to know how we've made the most of them at Soluble? Read on to find out how we shared it all in a live stream, which you can now watch on replay.
In less than a month, at Soluble we've integrated all these new changes from Figma in our workflow and in the optimization of our Soluto, the design system that ensures agility, coherence and a smooth flow in the creation of digital products. We change to grow, to be more efficient and to improve the common language between our Design and Tech areas. We change to gain in product quality, and also in happiness. And we share everything we've learned so that other brands and teams can also gain from this change.
Soluble goes live
Live, in front of more than 200 people and in Soluble's style. This is how Ada, product designer, and Emil, lead of our Design team, told us how to maximize the new features from Figma and how they've transferred the logic created for Soluto to Figma's recent native tools.
We show our workflow
Our Soluto is a design system in constant evolution. And we invest time, maintenance and hours of documentation in it so that we all win: designers, developers, clients and users.
In this live stream, we openly show Soluto and how we work in the studio. We reveal the intricacies of our design system, with no secrets. And we see how this Figma update allows us to simplify it and achieve faster and more efficient iterations. We also show how Soluto's scalability was critical to take on one of our most complex projects, Ecler's digital product.
The magic of variables and collections
Until now, to create fast and consistent responsive layouts for different screens, we used a custom solution, relative spacing. In the live stream, we explain how the new variables in Figma change our approach and give us, at last, a native solution. By transferring our logic to the variables, we’ve found the formula to speed up the creation of responsive designs and ensure consistency. And we share it live with a practical exercise.
These improvements in Figma, applied to the logic behind Soluto, allow us to be more agile, ensure consistency in our designs and maintain a smooth workflow between the Design and Tech teams. All with less effort and in less time. So we can focus on what matters: Creating exceptional experiences for exceptional brands.
Nothing happens at Soluble due to the efforts of just one person. This live stream wouldn’t have been possible without the collaboration of Ada Fàbregas and Emil Iosipescu; Carmen Fraga in production; Celia Santos in video and motion graphics; Daniel Senior in visual design and Andrea Martínez in writing and translation.
