The Lean Design System: How to create a Design System on the fly

Details

Do you ever feel like you just don’t have enough time to create that Design System you would love to have? That’s a shame because Design Systems are very useful. However, making a Design System when you’re busy in a scrum process is difficult.

Today we will share two Design System cases with you. One from Effectory and other from Greenchoice.

PROGRAM
18:00-19:00 Dinner & Drinks
19:00-19:30 Talk 1: Design System for an employee journey portal @Effectory
19:30-20:00 Talk 2: The Lean Design System of Greenchoice
20:00-20:20 Q&A session with Martijn, Sander, Anna and Patrick
20:20 - 21:00 Networking & drinks

🍷 Thanks to Effectory, food will be served at the meetup, with omnivore, vegetarian and vegan options.

👉 TALK 1: Design System for an employee journey portal @Effectory
Martijn and Sander are the two product designers from our host Effectory. They will share their story of setting up a design system for an employee journey portal. With only two designers for 3 dev teams there’s a strong need for the design system to speed things up and not slow them down. They will share their best practices and their struggles.

👉 TALK 2: The Lean Design System of Greenchoice

- How it all began and how they convinced stakeholders that they needed a Design System;
- Which steps they took to create a lean Design System;
- Who was involved at each step;
- What the Greenchoice Design System looks like and how it grows;
- How the System is integrated into the production environment;
- How Greenchoice combined building the Design System with other ‘scrum’ work.
