🎟 Limited spots
🛸 This live workshop is a pre-event of our live conference "The Future of Design Systems"

Please note: This workshop is not for beginners, you should have worked with Figma Tokens before. If you don't have any experience, we highly recommend to check out our basic workshop "Building token-based Design Systems in Figma - Step by Step" with Jan Six first.

In this workshop you will create tokens for choices that drive your design system's foundations and components. By using the plugin we'll be able to store the tokens on a single source of truth, enabling designers and developers to both access the same design tokens.

⚡️What you’ll learn from this live workshop:

- Overview of the plugin & how to create basic tokens e.g colors

- The best way to work with light and dark mode within different themes

- How to work with the Figma Tokens plugin and Figma Styles when you have multiple library files

- Workflow & Best Practices: How to handoff tokens to developers (concept, logic, JSON, Style Dictionary..)

- What's new in the Figma Tokens plugin: Annotations for developer handoff & more

- How to apply tokens to all variants of a component

- How to use math for a spacing scale

- Jan's Best Practices

There will be a live Q&A with Jan Six as well, participants can submit questions & topics before & during the workshop.
