A design system is the single source of truth that groups all elements that enable teams to design and develop consistent products and publications. This can include tangible elements like styles, components, and guidelines, but also intangible elements like beliefs, values, and mindsets.

We have invited three highly qualified people to share their experience building and maintaining design systems for the bustling workday of a cross-channel newsroom. Together with them, we will explore the challenges and opportunities of working on and with a living design system for visual journalism.

– Anna Wiederkehr, Head of Graphics, Neue Zürcher Zeitung
