Instructor

Instructor Hannah Wright

Hannah has 7+ years of design experience and is from Alaska. Creating this course has made it possible for her to teach Figma to technical schools remotely (since the content can be accessed anywhere), and her course has also helped employees at companies like Google and Salesforce learn how to use Figma.

She is also the founder of the design company SaaS Design, the destination for Figma templates. She has been featured in publications like Forbes and the American Express blog.

She feels a little strange writing about herself in third person.
