Hello folks, in this issue, we’ll look at…
- Some advanced Figma tips to make a better Design System,
- A lovely dentistry UX experience from the onboarding to booking,
- Why Apple Music is so terrible
- and much more…
🔪🩸The Miro Killer is here
Jade sent me this message about the new feature where you can import Miro boards directly into FigJam.
To be honest, other designers and I have been waiting for this for a long time. It’s pretty standard for tech companies to build “importers” to try to kill competitors.
FigJam isn’t on the same level as Miro (yet). There is still a need for better security controls and better integration with Google Forms and Typeform. There is a good chance that this will happen soon.
🥷 Mastering Components
You learned a lot about Design Systems in the bootcamp. However, to make this more complex, we will first need to incorporate some Base components within your library and use the. (dot) to hide it.
👉 Having made better components, it’s time to use this plugin called Propstar, created by Wise, to arrange them on a beautiful table.
🦷 Smile: Tend – your new dentistry experience.
I don’t remember how I found this website, but maybe Google heard me saying I wanted to go to the dentist, and at some point, I came across it.
By researching the company further, you can see they created a completely different customer experience. Aside from a well-crafted user interface, the interior decoration, architecture, pricing transparency, and other aspects, you can see how they addressed numerous common pain points.
It’s a whole user experience redesigned.
🍎 🎶 Apple UX problems
I tried using only Apple products for one week last year: Maps, TV, Music, you name it. Although I think Apple really needs UI Designers at the same level as the amazing industrial designers they have. Check out this article that outlines some of Apple Music’s potential improvements.

Some of you have been asking about Atlanta, and I can tell you I’m really enjoying this town. But since we moved to Atlanta, who is missing the most the Latin vibe? My son Oscar. I asked him where he is living now, and he answered me: Atlanta ooh na-na. 🤣
