From Figma to code is the perfect course for aspiring frontend developers who love a challenge and want to learn how to transform great-looking mockups into usable user interfaces.
This course aims to give you as much independent practice as possible. You’ll have access to detailed designs in Figma, which you’ll craft into user interfaces which look fantastic on a variety of screen sizes.
After you’ve built each project, UI expert and renowned web development educator Gary Simon will guide you through the code he would use to bring the mockup to life so you can compare it with your solution and pick up plenty of new tips and tricks.
A few more details on the designs you’ll bring to life throughout this course:
A Simple Card
The first challenge introduces you to Figma and recaps em and rem units before letting you loose with creating those pixel-perfect elements. Topics covered include CSS grid, SVGs as links, and media queries.
A Simple Landing Page
This challenge introduces a range of topics including creating a hero image, forms, and buttons, leaving you with a slick landing page that you can adapt for your own projects.
A Data Analytics Dashboard

A Car Sales Site
This massive project allows you to practice creating a sales site, including a search bar, like functionality, icons, and an animated dropdown.
Drone Event Landing Page
