How Do I Make Icons Exportable in Zeplin From Figma?

Figma offers a wide range of design options for teams that work collaboratively on projects. But once you are done creating the design, how do you make it exportable, especially when using Zeplin?

To make your design exportable from Figma to Zeplin, you first need to create a project and save it in the cloud. This can be done from the project page by clicking the “Create Project” button at the top of your screen. Once you have saved your project, you can now begin to export it as an icon.

Once you’ve saved your project, click “File” in the top menu bar and then select “Export”. On this page, you will be able to select which formats you would like to export your design in.

Select “Icon” from the list of options and then click “Export”. This will generate a .ico file that is ready for Zeplin.

The next step is to open up Zeplin and upload your .ico file. From here, you can select which sizes you would like for each icon and customize them for different platforms and devices. You can also add any additional meta-data such as author or copyright information.

Once all of these steps have been completed, your icons are now ready to be exported from Figma to Zeplin. With this setup in place, teams can easily collaborate on projects while keeping their designs consistent across devices.


Making icons exportable from Figma to Zeplin is not difficult if you know how to do it right. By saving a project in Figma’s cloud, exporting it as an icon format, uploading it into Zeplin and setting up the sizes and meta-data needed – teams can easily collaborate on projects while ensuring their designs are consistent across different platforms and devices.
