Hello, WebSensePro enthusiasts! Welcome back to another exciting tutorial on our channel. I’m Nida Shaikh, your co-host at WebSense Pro, and today we’re diving into the world of Figma to create a sleek Uber-style navigation menu. If you’re a Figma beginner, this tutorial is tailored just for you.
Building the Foundation
Our navigation menu begins with selecting a frame. Opt for the desktop version, and let’s create a rectangular container. Duplicate it with Ctrl + D, adjust the width to 1280, and align it center. This container will be the canvas for our navigation menu.
Now, let’s add text. For our Uber-inspired navigation, we’ll be crafting options for ‘Company,’ ‘Product,’ ‘Safety,’ and ‘Login.’ Duplicate the text with Ctrl + D as needed.
Icons add visual appeal. For the Uber icon, use ellipses and lines. Group them and adjust their sizes and positions. Repeat the process for the ‘Product’ and ‘Login’ icons, ensuring a consistent design language.
Styling and Grouping
Apply colors to the rectangles and icons. Group related elements using Cmd + G for a more organized structure. Adjust text sizes for visual balance, and ensure the spacing is consistent.
Creating Hover Effects
Give your navigation menu a dynamic touch by adding hover effects. Use rectangles with curved edges to highlight the selected option. Adjust layer order if needed for better visibility.
