Create High-Fidelity Designs and Prototypes in Figma is the fifth course in a certificate program that will equip you with the skills you need to apply to entry-level jobs in user experience (UX) design. In this course, you will follow step-by-step tutorials to learn how to create high-fidelity designs, called mockups, in Figma, a popular design tool. Then, you’ll turn those designs into an interactive prototype that works like a finished product. You’ll conduct research to collect feedback about your designs and make improvements. Finally, you’ll learn how to share your designs with development teams and highlight your work in your professional UX portfolio.

來自CREATE HIGH-FIDELITY DESIGNS AND PROTOTYPES IN FIGMA的熱門評論
This was a tough one, but it was great to see the work culminate into a working prototype. The instructor was very positive and encouraging, which was very helpful.
The course was awesome. Detailed and step-by-step instructions.
Many thanks to wonderful Trainer Kunal, I liked the way he conducted all study.
Thank you Coursera and Google.
Comprehensive and relelvant. I love how you actually build a portfolio in the process. Some of the assignments took longer than advertised, though, because I was trying to put my work into it.
It would be great if this course also included feedback from Google UXers or experienced mentors. I'm seeing feedback provided to peers that is not helpful and encouraging poor design.

What is a UX designer?
User experience (UX) designers focus on the experience that users have while using products like websites, apps, and physical objects. UX designers make those everyday interactions useful, enjoyable, and accessible. The role of an entry-level UX designer might include coming up with ideas to address user problems, conducting research with users, and designing wireframes, mockups, and prototypes.
If you enjoy talking to and empathizing with people, drawing, thinking creatively, or paying attention to details, a job as a UX designer might be a good fit for you!
What background is required?
This course is the fifth of seven courses that will equip you with the skills you need to apply to entry-level jobs in user experience design. We strongly recommend that you complete the first four courses of the Google UX Design Certificate before completing this one:
- Course 1: Foundations of User Experience (UX) Design
- Course 3: Build Wireframes and Low-Fidelity Prototypes
- Course 4: Conduct UX Research and Test Early Concepts
Alternatively, you should have experience conducting user research in order to empathize with user needs and determine specific user pain points. You also need to have the ability to create personas, user stories, and user journey maps, as well as draft problem statements and value propositions. You need to know how to create wireframes and low-fidelity prototypes on paper and in the design tool Figma. It’s helpful to have experience conducting usability studies and iterating on designs, as well. If you are unfamiliar with any of these topics, they are covered in earlier courses of the Google UX Design Certificate.
What tools or platforms are included in the curriculum?
Figma and Adobe XD are the design tools taught in the seven courses of the Google UX Design Certificate. This course focuses on creating designs in Figma.
Spreadsheets, word processing applications, and presentation applications will also be used. Throughout the program, you will create a professional portfolio, using the platform of your choice, to showcase your UX design work.
Which jobs will this certificate help me prepare for?
One of the most exciting parts about joining the field of user experience is the large number of job opportunities available. Nearly every company needs UX designers to help create their digital and physical products. While the need for UX designers continues to grow, there is currently a shortage of UX design professionals to fill those roles.
A career in UX design allows you the opportunity to work as a generalist, finding a role as a UX designer, UI designer, or UX researcher, or as a specialist, like a visual designer or interaction designer. Upon completion of this certificate program, you will be able to search for jobs with all of these titles, and find the role that best suits you.
Do I need to take the course in a certain order?
This is the fifth of seven courses in the Google UX Design Certificate. We highly recommend completing the seven courses in this certificate program in the order presented, because the content and applications in each course build on information presented and practiced in earlier courses.
