About this event

As your organization grows, you’ll likely need to evolve your brand and design too. Developing a design system will help you speed up the design process, eliminate inconsistencies, and reduce design debt across your whole organization.

Global technology companies like Uber, Shopify, Airbnb have changed the ways they design digital products by incorporating their own unique design systems. By utilizing a collection of repeatable components and a set of standards guiding the use of those components, each of these companies has been able to change the pace of creation and innovation within their teams.

In this conversation, we will learn the difference between design systems, style guides, and pattern libraries. How to create your first design system with your design team and getting organizational buy-in.

The event will be happening live and will last for 60 minutes with some extra minutes dedicated to questions and feedback.
