Meet Vijay Verma – Design Wizard 🧙 🇮🇳

Published by Rob Hope in Interviews, on 7 Jun 2024

Meet Vijay Verma – a talented designer renowned for his intricate Figma art and his extensive portfolio of free digital resources.

I have featured Vijay’s One Page websites in the past so it was killer to have a chat with him.

Watch below or on YouTube, or listen on Spotify, Apple or Google.

 

 

In this episode, we explore his humble beginnings as an electrician in India and his rise to become one of the most beloved designers in the Figma community. Additionally, we have a special case study where Vijay walks us through his character design process, complete with a bonus time-lapse recording he sent after the interview.

Please note that Vijay speaks quite fast, and this is a media-rich episode. Therefore, I highly recommend watching the interview on YouTube with subtitles on.
