The client is concerned about the complexity and technical skills necessary to utilize Figma for design. They’d like to know if Figma requires knowledge of coding and coding languages.
No, Figma does not require coding. Figma is a vector-based design tool that allows users to create interfaces and work on collaborative projects. It is designed for easy use without any type of coding knowledge required.
