## Design Token​

A design token, which has some properties. Please refer to the full token reference.

### Token Type​

Theemo differentiates between three token types.

• Basic - A very low-level token, e.g. a color from your palette
• Purpose - A token given a semantic meaning, e.g. the action color (referencing to a basic token)
• Component - A token for a specific use-case. E.g. The heading color for your hero component

Here are some references for you, that explain them in various ways:

## Scalable Design Tokens​
