Live Workshop: Building token-based Design Systems in Figma (Limited Tickets 💶)

🎫 🎫 🎫 Limited Tickets - Purchase a ticket here: 🎫 🎫 🎫https://intodesignsystems.gumroad.com/l/WmRwLb

Hands-on workshop designing token-based design systems in Figma utilizing the plugin "Figma Tokens".
We'll create tokens for spacing, border radii, typography and color choices that drive our design system's foundations and components. By using the plugin we'll be able to store our tokens on a single source of truth, enabling designers and developers to both access the same design tokens.
