The role of design with large organizations is expanding, spreading across product teams and influencing decision-making at higher and higher levels. This scale makes it increasingly challenging to align designers and product teams to deliver cohesive, consistent experiences across a customer journey.
A design system is a framework of practices that bring designers and products together. It is a platform to identify, decide on, and document what to share, whether a visual style, design patterns, front-end UI components, and practices like accessibility, research, content strategy.
This workshop exposes you to the broad range of those considerations — the kinds of parts, products, people and practices involved — and equips you with tools and activities to start, spread, and sustain a system yourself.
