Multi-Brand Design Systems: Part 1 Getting Started

Apr 5, 2021, 11:00 PM – Apr 6, 2021, 12:00 AM

There is a lot to discuss in Design Systems therefore, I'm breaking it into 4 parts. In the first session, we will talk about: what a multi-brand system is, discovering the problems your design system needs to solve, a detailed process of auditing your existing components, and how to set up your team. This is not a be-all-end-all, silver bullet solution, but I'd love to share my process with you.

About this event

Hello, Friends of Figma, Orlando! 

It's tricky to build a design system that supports multiple brands because each brand is unique and distinct from the others. Everything from components to the use of color and typography has been designed a little differently for each brand to optimize for different audiences.

But making a multi-brand design system work is not only about a UI kit. Success lies in how well it’s adopted into an organization’s culture, processes, and infrastructure. 

Overall starting a design system is intimidating & at times cumbersome; that's why I'm creating a 4 part discussion. 

Part 1: Getting Started (April 5)

Part 2: Setup & Organizing files

Part 3: Scaling & Extending Components

Part 4: Measuring the Impact 

In Part 1: Getting Started we will discuss: 

- What a multi-brand system is

- Discovering the problems your Design System needs to solve 

- Detailed process of auditing your existing components

- How to set up your team

This is not a be-all-end-all, silver bullet solution, but I'd love to share my process with you.

If you’re building a multi-brand design system in your organization, or you’ve got a question or suggestion about the approach, please join us!
