I know first-hand how tedious the design process can be, and because of that, I constantly try refining it to ensure my work is up-to-the-mark and less time-consuming.
That’s why I wanted to share some of my favorite plugins with you. These ten Figma plugins have helped me immensely. With just a few clicks, I can transform how I work with design elements, collaborate on projects with others or even automate some tasks altogether — saving valuable time for other creative pursuits.
