Figma grid starter kit for Semplice

Reading time: < 1 minute

I’ve been using the Semplice theme for the last few years for this website. It’s intuitive and isn’t weighed down like most WordPress builders.

An unintuitive part of Semplice is the custom grid system. It's not clear how padding settings work, so it's difficult to predict how they will look. Until now :)

I create a Figma kit for Semplice with grid styles that match Semplice's grid system. This makes it easy for Figma / Semplice users to create accurate layouts.
My kit uses a double-grid system. The hairline guides are column breakpoints and the thick guides are gutters:

  • use gutter guides for content
  • use hairline guides for column background colors

You can find my kit in the Figma Community

Whiteboards & Stickies: variants remix

Reading time: < 1 minute

Whiteboards & Stickies is the most popular stickies project in the Figma community. The stickies look amazing and are built using auto-layout, but they didn't go so far as to use components, let alone variants. With Config coming soon, I decided to give back to the community by remixing the kit to use variants and a few extra features.
