UX developer focusing on Design Systems, Design Tokens, and all things Web Components.

Design tokens aren’t just something that you can easily retrofit into your existing wardrobe. They require an entirely new way of thinking and working. Learn how to start thinking in design tokens by completely changing the way you work with design systems.

Design Token Thinking
  • Design tokens require an entirely new way of thinking and working.
  • Designers can be documenting their design system, but the documentation will always be a step behind their design file.
  • The author unpacks the idea of an alternative design system and names it “the way of the future.”
  • Design tokens need to become a primary method for how you talk about and interact with your design system, both internally and externally.
  • In the end, you can get a design system that is:
    1. Future proof
    2. Accessible
    3. Able to be easily changed.
