Understanding NDS visual language
To be effective at using the Nulogy Design System designers should familiarize themselves with the basics of NDS visual language. The following articles provide a good starting point:
Designing with NDS in Figma
In Figma, the NDS components are available under the
Assets panel in Left Sidebar. The components are easily drag-and-dropped into the working frame and further customized through

Default sreen sizes and Frame component
The NDS Frame component is created to help designers set the working canvas. It comes in different sizes that match breakpoints in NDS. Once imported the Frame component should be detached (Detach Instance) so that other elements can be nested inside.
