From design to development, team collaboration is essential for design systems adoption. Our speakers will share the tools and techniques that have helped them succeed.
We're partnering with Figma who are hosting design systems meetups around the world! We'll have 4 speakers to sharing their experiences with time for Q&A after the lightning talks. Here's the line-up:
Noah is the Design Manager at Figma, and occasionally enjoys the struggle-bus that is design systems. He recently moved back to SF after 2 years in NYC, where he previously led the design team at ClassPass. Before that, he spent 4.5 years designing iOS apps at Google, where he observed Material Design’s birth and development.
Natalya is a software engineer at The New York Times and an instructor at the Harvard Extension School where she teaches Modular Design Patterns with React. As a classically trained fine artist and designer, crossing disciplines and blurring the line between design and development is at the heart of much of her work.
Brent is a Principal UX Developer at Priceline.com and cofounder of Compositor, focusing on design systems, developer education, React architecture, and front-end design tooling. Previously at Kickstarter, Etsy, and The Grid, he has created and contributed to several open source projects, including Basscss, CSS Stats, Rebass, and Styled System.
Chesley is a Senior Product Design Manager at Betterment where she leads their design systems working group. Previously a Product Designer and Manager at Etsy, she contributed to multiple style guide iterations. An experience designer at heart, Chesley cares about creating compelling, easily understandable interfaces that help people feel empowered and awesome.
