Variables aren’t just for developers anymore! Now, from the comfort of our design workspace, we can unlock the power of more adaptive and flexible design. Boost your designs by adding support for light, dark, and high contrast color modes. Improve usability by supporting multiple densities.
Take your designs to a whole new level with fewer headaches and more precision. Why should developers get to have all the power (and fun)?
The course works around your schedule. We meet for 6 hours total—3 sessions of 2 hours each.

Junior designers who want to get ahead of the curve and stand out from the crowd
Seasoned designers who are looking to up their game and support new capabilities in their products
Senior designers looking to take their learnings back to their teams
Build color palettes that differentiate between primitive color values, semantic colors, and component-specific colors.
Stop pixel-pushing and start using a system that translates more immediately to the implementation of your designs.
Your developers already think in terms of variables and conditional logic. Now you can too without leaving the comfort of Figma!
Prototypes are a great tool to test out ideas with users before committing to code. Give your usability tests more realism with less effort, and let your testers wander off the “happy path.”
