Design Plugins for Figma in 2022

Design Plugins for Figma – If you’re a designer and don’t know Figma, you’re missing out.


I wrote an article about Figma plugins that can help you optimize and speed up your workflow. Figma is now almost every designer’s and artist’s favorite tool since then. With Figjam and the addition of auto layout, variants, and several other huge Figma updates, the plugin realm has also changed a lot. So, in this article, I have an updated list of plugins that will speed up your design process.

Make your life easier with Figma plugins

1. Image tracer

By Dave Williames

Trace black and white bitmap images to turn them into a vector layer.

When you run Image tracer; it will take whatever layers you have selected and combine them together into one image (regardless of if they’re already a vector or not) — then it will convert it to ‘black & white’ and attempt to trace it into a new vector layer.

You can view the image it is tracing, by changing the dropdown in the options popup from ‘Original image’ to ‘Processed image’.


By Iconify and Vjacheslav Trushkin

Import Material Design Icons, FontAwesome, Jam Icons, EmojiOne, Twitter Emoji and many other icons (more than 100 icon sets containing over 100,000 icons) to Figma document as vector shapes.

By Marvin Bruns

Quickly generate a simple typescale/modular scale.

This is an very early version.

# What is a modular scale?

A modular scale in Typography is used to generate a visual rhythm in font sizes. This plugin helps to generate those sizes. Starting with a base-value, font-size increments and decrements from that size with a multiplier you set.

# What can I do here?

This plugin lets you generate a modular scale. At this stage it’s fairly basic. Functions as you also could know them from websites about this topic.

1. Set a base-size

2. Set a multiplier

3. Set how many sizes you want above and below the base-size

4. Decide to round or not to round values. An addition many alternatives currently miss.
