How can you make the best use of the tools included in the Aspiring Creatives Experience?


The design of a project is the backbone to which all other pieces are dependent. Become inspired by tapping into your creativity, from sets by thousands of artists around the world to snappy interface tools, such as Iconscout, Icons8, Octicons, and Figma.

Brainstorm & Organize

Sometimes, getting another pair of eyes on a project can spark creativity. Ideate with others by bringing projects together while synchronizing collaboration efforts through shared tasks and checklists in FigJam.


Get exposure for your project and discover other student repositories in need of collaborators and maintainers through GitHub Global Campus by visiting the GitHub Community Exchange.

GitHub Education welcomed Figma Education’s, Lauren McCann, to CampusTV to discuss all things Figma and Aspiring Creatives, including the brand new GitHub Education‐designed hackathon templates created by Campus Expert, Vaishnavi Dwivedi .

The mini designs systems for hackathons template was developed to inspire student developers who struggle while designing hackathon projects. Be it colors, typefaces, or simple wireframes to decide their project flow, this template can help them save time while building their hack. Aspiring Creatives can use the template for storyboarding, prototyping, and presenting their work and designer-dev handoffs.
