Recap: WeDesign

On the 15th of February 2020, the Figma Africa Enugu State community held its maiden event themed WeDesign. The purpose of the event was to create awareness for the design scene in Enugu State, introducing them to the Figma design tool and to officially launch the Figma Africa Enugu State design community.

The event was held at Dreams Hub in Enugu, was sponsored by Figma Design and Dribbble and was hosted by Eugene Ebere, the resident Figma Design Ambassador and his team. The event started off with an icebreaker, where the attendees introduced themselves and how long they have been in design, then we went on to play Kahoot to lighten the mood while the first speaker got ready.

The first speaker was Emenike Daniel who is a UI/UX designer at matte.ng. He talked about career opportunities in design. He took out time to buttress on the industries where designers are needed and how to go about getting designer roles in these industries.

The second talk session was on concepts of design and was taken by Chibuzor Emmanuel who is a designer at Binary Hills. He spoke on way to apply various concepts in design so as to create a usuable products. While the second speaker was on, we shared snacks to the attendees

The event lasted for approximately 5 hours and towards the end, we had a workshop session that was taken by the resident ambassador, where we introduced the attendees to the Figma environment and how to use the Figma while we created a very simple Sign Up page. We also created a whatsapp group where we could share our designs and also help monitor the progress of the community
