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.

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

I signed up for a Master Class webinar which aired recently, but I cannot find the recording in my email inbox. What can I do?
The email with the recording is sent automatically to all registrants. However, because it contains links, it might get blocked by your spam filters.

I missed registering for some of the Master Class webinars hosted in previous months. How can I get access to them now?
Some of our past Master Classes are available on-demand at https://www.interaction-design.org/master-classes We’re constantly working to make recent Master Classes available on demand, so you can keep checking this page for new additions!
I’m a member, but I cannot see all the Master Classes I purchased on my profile. How can I find the ones that are missing?
Many of the past Master Classes have been edited and uploaded to our platform so that our members can view them conveniently in one place.

After each Master Class broadcast, our video editors painstakingly edit, improve and enhance the quality of these recordings to give you a better experience—but this process takes time, and that’s why there’s sometimes a delay in making them available within your profile.

Until recent Master Class recordings appear in your profile, you can always playback any of the Master Classes you’ve purchased using the Zoom recording links you received after the broadcast. Can’t find these recording links? Then please email mads.soegaard@interaction-design.org for assistance.
