BlogFigma plugins we can't live without

By Justin Byrne

We made the switch from Sketch to Figma several years ago and have never looked back. Figma already comes with a huge arsenal of features, but these plugins help super-charge our workflow.  Here's a list of our top 10 plugins that we can't live without...

Batch Styler

Batch Styler allows us to change multiple text and colour styles at once! Saving us heaps of time.

Content Reel

Mocking up designs with indicative content is great for both clients and designers. It allows us to check everything works prior to receiving content. This plugin allows us to quickly and easily populate designs with names, dates, icons etc automatically. No more manual entry of dates on news articles, or making up new creative names for staff listing visuals...

Aspects allows us to resize images to a specific aspect ratio within Figma. Meaning we can reduce the need for unique image sizes - making content editors life a breeze within the CMS.

Import icons from over 100 icon sets to use within our Figma designs. Such as Material Design Icons, FontAwesome, Jam Icons, EmojiOne, Twitter Emoji and many more.

Beautiful, free photography that we can use to populate our designs.

Lorem ipsum

Quickly and easily generate paragraphs of 'lorem ipsum' dummy text to populate our designs.

A few notable mentions

Figma format

We can format our Figma canvases by grouping each artboard by their names. We like to keep our Figma files very tidy.

Lottie Files

Lottie Files allows us to include animated icons and illustrations within our Figma designs, which can be previewed by clients.

Phew... no more taking screenshots of google maps to populate designs. Get them direct, at the required size,  within Figma.

A plugin for sorting/reordering layers. Again, we like to keep our files tidy and organised.
