It’s the start of the week, you’ve got a dozen design tasks pending, Slack messages from over the weekend, a daily standup to attend in ten minutes…and you haven’t even had your morning coffee.
Yep, being a designer can be tough. But it’s possible to improve your design workflow with the right tools, so you can focus on what matters most – instead of spending time on tasks that don’t pay off. Intrigued? Here’s how to use the IconScout for Figma plugin to speed up your design workflow.
With the IconScout for Figma plugin, you can find and insert millions of design assets – without leaving Figma! You’ll get access to vector icons and illustrations, as well as 3D assets like 3D icons and 3D illustrations.
And that’s it! Open any Figma file, right-click and hover over Plugins – you should see the IconScout plugin.
So how do you speed up your Figma workflow? Watch the video below for tips on how the IconScout plugin can help – or scroll down to read a written version.
With the IconScout for Figma plugin, make use of these search filters to find stunning icons, illustrations and 3D assets faster:
You can choose to display search results as individual assets, or asset packs.
Who has time to switch browser tabs to find the right assets, download them in the right format, then upload them to Figma? You could waste a lot of time (and risk getting distracted) in the process.
That’s why the IconScout for Figma plugin could be a huge timesaver. Once you find a design asset you like, just click to insert it, or drag and drop it into your Figma file.
Ever had trouble looking for a design asset you’ve previously used? Perhaps you’ve used it in another design project, or you’ve deleted it and want to get it back. Searching for it again can be a hassle.
But with the IconScout for Figma plugin, you can click the My Downloads button to look at all your past downloads. You can also search your past downloads to quickly find what you need.
Do you have a graphic designer, motion designer or 3D designer you really like? There’s no need to keep checking their profile pages for new design assets – just use the Follow feature on the IconScout for Figma plugin.
You can follow favourite designers by clicking the + button in the plugin.
You can also follow favorite designers when you search for design assets.
Don’t use Figma, but still want to speed up your design workflow? No worries. The IconScout plugin is also available for Sketch, Adobe XD, Canva, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and more. Check out IconScout’s full list of integrations with your favorite design tools.
