This blog post explains in detail how Figma's component artictecture works and what makes the system unique from other tools.

This can have a huge impact, across the span of an entire design system because it can help keep components contained and reduce the number of components required.

  • Nesting Components
  • Instance Swapping
  • Masking
  • Cropping Components
  • Text Components ... and more!
