The UX Cocktail Hour Rotterdam is an informal event for everyone who has an interest in User Experience Design. The Rotterdam edition is organized since 2011.
We have speakers and workshops on topics related to UX: design, research, projects, education and development. There is ample opportunity to enjoy a drink and chat. There are about 4 events a year. Each edition is at a different location in or nearby Rotterdam.
We hope you had a good end of 2018! We’re starting off 2019 with another UX Cocktail Hour in Rotterdam. Anna Botsvine will give a talk and facilitate a workshop on Design Systems, hosted at Hoppinger.
** Topic **
Developing and maintaining a consistent user experience is hot today. The number of devices and platforms that we have to support as designers and developers is growing fast. One way to deal with this is a Design System: A process with roles and responsibilities and a framework that contains all the agreements such as accessibility guidelines, a UI-kit, content guidelines, brand guidelines, patterns, component libraries and so on. However, setting this up and expanding it is easier said than done.
Anna will share insights from the ‘State of Design Systems’ survey she conducted among 260+ designers and developers from the Netherlands. Besides that, she will give some tips on how you can start, maintain and scale your Design System based on our own experiences.
