How Do I Get Figma on My Mac?

Figma is a powerful and popular design tool used by designers around the world for creating user interfaces, illustrations, user flows, and more. It’s a great choice for any creative project – but how do you get it on your Mac?

The process of installing Figma on your Mac is actually quite simple.

The first step is to download the Figma Desktop app from their website. This app is available for free, and all you need to do is head to their website and click the “Download” button. This will download a package file that contains the desktop application.

Once you’ve downloaded the package file, you’ll need to open it up. This can be done by double-clicking the file or right-clicking it and selecting “Open With.”

You’ll then be prompted to agree to Figma’s terms of service, which you must accept in order to proceed with installation. After that, a window will appear with instructions on how to finish the installation process.

The next step is to launch the Figma Desktop app. This can be done by double-clicking its icon in your Applications folder or searching for it in Spotlight (the search feature built into macOS). Once opened, you’ll need to sign up for a Figma account if you don’t already have one – this will allow you access all of Figma’s features.

After signing up for an account (or logging into your existing one), you’ll be ready to start using Figma. You can create new projects from scratch or import existing ones from other applications such as Photoshop or Sketch. Additionally, if you have any cloud storage services such as Dropbox or Google Drive connected to your account, these files can also be accessed within Figma.


Getting Figma on your Mac is easy and straightforward! All you need to do is download the app from their website, install it following their instructions, launch it through Applications or Spotlight and then sign up/log in with an account – after which you can start creating awesome designs!
