How to Use Figma to create all your social assets

Say for instance you have just finished a blog post and now you want to share that on other platforms and get your Tweets, FB and Instagram posts out. This means going into whatever editor you use and creating each one.

Other time consuming tasks include

  • Feedback from client to change something small which means editing 5 images
  • Creating various images sizes for each channel for a content plan. Say you have five channels... thats 5x30 assets for the month
  • Slow turnaround fro being reactive
