How Do You Use Mesh Gradients in Figma?

Mesh gradients are an extremely useful tool for designing in Figma. They are a great way to add depth and texture to your designs, and can be used to create an array of effects. Mesh gradients allow you to create a gradient that transitions from one color to another, but with a more organic feel. To use mesh gradients in Figma, select the ‘Create Rectangle’ tool from the left-hand toolbar.

From there, click on the ‘Fill’ option at the top of the toolbar. This will bring up a menu with several options for filling your shape, including solid colors and gradients. Select ‘Mesh Gradient’ from this menu.

Once you select Mesh Gradient, you will be presented with a few options for configuring it. You can adjust the number of rows and columns that form your gradient, as well as the size of each row or column.

You can also adjust the color of each row or column by clicking on it and selecting a new color from the color picker. Additionally, you will have access to several tools such as move, rotate, scale etc., which can be used to adjust how your mesh is formed.

Once you have configured your mesh gradient, you can then use the ‘Export’ option at the top right corner of the screen which allows you to export your design as an image file or SVG file for use in other applications.


Mesh gradients are an incredibly powerful tool for creating stunning designs in Figma. By adjusting parameters such as number of columns/rows and size/color of each point in a mesh gradient, designers can create unique effects that would otherwise not be possible with other types of gradients. With just a few clicks of a button users can export their creations for use in other applications.
