CDW Figma Design Competition

A bit of friendly competition is coming to Cincinnati Design Week this year, as we partner with Cincinnati’s Friends of Figma for the first CDW Figma Design Competition. Designers will compete for 30 minutes in a UX design challenge to be live-streamed and judged, for the winner to hold their head high among peers as their victor.

During the competition, follow along with the designers and watch as they make choices, utilize shortcuts, and innovate to create winning designs. Meanwhile, enjoy networking among some of the industry’s top creatives, enjoy refreshments, and root for your favorite as you watch it designed.

We hope you’ll join us to see the best and fastest Figma designers compete to be the first ever champion of the CDW’s Figma Design Competition.
