Figma Template Guide

This guide shows the steps to setup Figma for creating icons that conform to the Featherity design guidelines.

Setting Up The Frame

When you create a new document in Figma, the document. Each individual icon you want to create, has to be created in a separate frame.

To do this, create a frame of 24x24 pixels.

  1. Click the frame button (or press F)
  2. Draw a 24x24 frame (or edit it afterwards from the design window)

In this newly created frame, you will create your icon. If you want, you can change the name of your frame to the name of the icon you are going to create. Then it will be exported as FRAME-NAME.svg.

Create Your icon

To design your icon in the style of Feather Icons, you need to adjust a few settings in Figma.

Draw in your new frame with the pen tool. You can open it with the window at the top, or with the shortcut P. Once you click in your frame, you can adjust the settings for the pen tool in the design-window on the right.

Set the following:

  1. Vector
    1. Corner radius: 2px
  2. Stroke
    1. Stroke width: 2px
    2. Stroke alignment: center

Figma Tips
