Figma Tutorial Videos, How-Tos and Speed designs

by Erik Briones | June 11, 2020

The past few months I have been busy creating Figma tutorial videos in Youtube. It is a fun exercise. I now have mad respect for Yotubers, those that create tutorial videos, which I enjoy watching most of the time. It is not as easy as it looks. The easier it looks, and the nicer it is, it probably means these guys put in a lot of effort in doing it.

Here are some of the videos that I have created.

I started with a few speed design videos, and then transitioned into a little bit more like a tutorial on how to do some minor stuff in Figma design.

Then I actually realized, as I gained a little bit more subscribers, that I should create videos that talk about the basics first.

And here is the latest one I made from about 2 weeks from my writing this blog.

I might be discussing my workflow in a separate blog post, but basically I screen record my videos using Figma and Quicktime, then place it in iMovie and add some sound.

As I progressed, I learned to add slides, intros and outros in iMovie.

From Youtube as well, I learned how to add thumbnails, cards, Closed Captions.

It seems like a lot, but I actually learned them as I go. You should definitely create your own Youtube video. Do not create it for the hits or the views, or for money. At least create it just to share to the world what you know.

I know my videos are not that high leve yet. I do not even have a voice-over which I really intend to do. But this exercise will help you learn more of the things apart from just publishing a video.

More like side quests, if you are into gaming. 🙂

That’s it for now. See you later.

P.S. Do you have a Youtube video? Hit me up on the comments section below or on my Youtube channel and I will definitely check it out. I am fond of watching videos about design in general, tech, hackintosh, music, life stories, recipes, just about anything!
