🎨 How to create a minimal design system with limited resources - Armağan Ersöz & Raouf Araji (@broccolinisoup) - 30 min
Design systems are an essential part of building consistent digital products, but it's sometimes treated as a side priority that doesn't get the attention it deserves.
Maybe you want to start building one but are a bit lost. Maybe you do not have enough buy-in from the business. Maybe there aren't enough resources for the design system to reach maturity. In this talk, Raouf and Armağan will talk about what the design systems are and how to build and maintain one from a designer and a developer perspective. They will share their first hand experiences of building one and give some actionable tips and tricks, especially when you don't have a dedicated team.
