The thoughtbot design team hosts a breakfast called thoughtbites, where we bring together designers and developers for a morning hang and pancake.
In this installment, we'll be hearing from our special guest Theresa Bartolini who leads the Global Experience team at Wayfair - excerpt below!
"I love our design system – said no one ever. So how do you go about building support, adoption, appreciation – and perhaps even love – for your design system from your product managers, designers, and engineers? We’ll talk about building, selling, tooling, teams and the one truth that really matters. Plus some fun stories from Wayfair, and what it looks like when your design system supports 70+ designers, 90+ product managers, and 2000+ engineers."
A bit more about Theresa:
"Over 18 years of contributing to digital media creation, I’ve used video, design, and code as my primary tools to deliver user-centric solutions that embrace the very messy nature of designing for people. My favorite approach to problem-solving involves listening, accepting, and changing my mind.
Today I head up the Global Experience team at Wayfair, the team responsible for the Design Systems that power Wayfair.com, our sub-brands, B2B and services offerings, as well as System Governance and Design Ops for the 70+ strong Experience Design team at Wayfair."
We look forward to seeing you there!
