Using a UI kit for Figma can greatly simplify the life of designers 😀. The structure of the document is created - a kind of template for a quick start. You just need to adjust the style of the already created objects (fonts, colors, shape buttons, etc.) and all the elements and blocks will inherit this style. Or you can immediately build layouts of ready-made blocks, and then configure these blocks in one place (in the master components), and all copies (instances) will inherit the changes. The Figma is very useful in android development, using this tool it is possible to convert your idea into native Android apps quickly.

Layouts of the site, created with the UI kit will contain a clearly structured style guide, which can also be useful for marketers to create promotional materials, for developers - if you need some element which is not in the design.

How to Work With it?

Configure each (this will take a little time at first, but later it will pay off + no one forbids the use of plugins, but that's another story). Modifiable styles dynamically change on previews.
