Managing and defining Design Tokens

My team is working on building a design system and we’ve been discussing how we should organize and manage design tokens.

Discussion Topics

  • Why use different token types besides global tokens within a design system that spans multiple products. We know the whole design/dev collaboration stuff but our dev members use figma regularly and they know where to look. So what other benefits are there for us to define other types of tokens like alias tokens, defined in Spectrum.
  • How should we manage design tokens in figma.

I know every team has their own way of managing design tokens but I was wondering if I could get some perspectives.
