Design Tokens are among the smallest but most powerful parts of Design Systems. They unlock a deeper level of tooling for systems that can enable quick rebrands, theming and easy updates to all kinds of component styling.

But what actually are Design Tokens? Do we need them? Who are they for? How do we build them and use them? And why is everyone so excited about them?

In this Master Class Webinar, Henry Daggett, Design System Lead at Societe Generale, will give a complete overview of Design Tokens; starting with their origins and actual usage in established design systems, to how you can begin building Design Tokens in your Design Systems and projects and show their value to stakeholders.

You’ll learn:

  • When and where to use tokens, and how to justify their value.
  • What level of tokens you need for different design system environments.
  • The difference between tokens, variables and styles.
  • How to begin creating tokens and use Figma variables.
  • How to name your tokens, so they are easy to use.

Join this Webinar to learn all you’ll need to know to get started with Design Tokens, alongside plenty of resources to help you understand and build them—whether you’re working on an established Design System or just beginning your journey into them.

Error messages are essential to create a successful user experience (UX). They guide users, offer instant feedback, and prevent mishaps. Friendly and informative, they build trust and empower users while ensuring inclusivity and satisfaction. However, many error messages fall short, being too generic or technical, and lead to frustration rather than assistance.

How can we design better error messages UX? How do we display errors in data tables? Where do we place them?

In this one-hour Master Class webinar with Vitaly Friedman, a UX Lead working with the European Parliament and the Founder of Smashing Magazine, you'll delve into error message UX details, covering form layout, live validation, disabled buttons, compatibility, and crafting effective error messages. You'll also learn techniques to improve error recovery rates and proactively minimize errors.

You’ll learn:

  • How to display error messages in complex apps and forms.
  • How to design better validation to reduce friction and frustration.
  • Where to place error messages in a layout for tables, filters and forms.
  • How to prevent mistakes and slips with better form design.

Join this Master Class webinar to learn techniques to design better error messages, improve validation, optimize error message placement and prevent mistakes.

Niels Floor, Learning Experience Design Pioneer

Just as you can design a user experience that delights, you can design a learning experience that empowers. The field of learning experience design (LXD) bridges the gap between the world of design and the world of learning.

You may not have heard of LXD before, but you’re probably already using LXD design principles in your daily design practice, in activities like human-centered design, goal-oriented design, design research and prototyping.

In this Master Class webinar, LXD pioneer Niels Floor will show you how any designer can become a successful learning experience designer through LXD fundamentals and practical tips. Discover how you can use your UX design skills to create better ways of learning.

You’ll learn:

  • What LXD is, how it works, and why it matters.
  • Differences and similarities between LXD and IxD.
  • Why interaction designers are crucial in the world of learning.
  • How to step into the world of LXD as an interaction designer.
  • How to use powerful design tools like the Learning Experience Canvas®.

Design powerful learning experiences—this is your chance to stay ahead of the curve and learn from the best practices of the fascinating field of LXD.

Even if you can't attend live, register to gain access to a recording that you can watch at any time after the broadcast.
