Last month, Loft teamed up with Figma and Providence UX Meetup to host the first-ever PVD UX workshop. Led by talented product designer and Meetup member Masha Shaposhnikova, the workshop brought together twenty-five attendees who had the opportunity to network and learn how to build toast components while raising funds for Ten Lives Cat Rescue, a local animal shelter.
Over the course of the 1.5-hour workshop, participants not only learned how to build a toast component in Figma but also gained insights into the software's various features. These included auto-layout, varients, boolean component properties, absolute positioning, and smart animate for prototyping.
Figma also provided some fun swag for attendees, including branded socks, pins, and stickers. In addition, all participants received a six-month pro subscription to Figma!
The workshop wasn’t just about learning new skills and receiving fun swag. It was also an opportunity to give back to the community by supporting Ten Lives Cat Rescue and its important work. All proceeds from the event went directly to helping Gustavo and Samuel, two cats at the local shelter.
Loft, Figma, and PVD Meetup were thrilled by the success of the workshop, which provided attendees with a valuable learning opportunity and the chance to connect with other local designers. The team at Loft looks forward to hosting more events like this in the future and welcomes anyone in the design community to attend. By bringing together talented designers, networking opportunities, and a worthy cause, Loft was able to create a truly impactful event for our community.
