Figma plugins we can't live without

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

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.

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.

Mapsicle
