The Making of a Successful Design System

Link visible for attendees

Have you wondered why Design Systems got established as a necessity for companies large and small? Their popularity prompted us to dedicate our March meeting to an interactive presentation and discussion about design systems.

If you’re a seasoned UX/UI designer, it’s a safe bet that you’ve had to work with one. And if you’re looking to break into the field, you’ve encountered job ads that list experience with design systems, pattern libraries, design repos or style guides. What is the difference between them? How do you go about mastering the multiple dimensions of a design system?

Our speaker, Jim Chung, has guided several companies through the building and growing of their design systems. He will provide you with an insider’s view of the benefits and pitfalls, the building blocks and developer hand-offs. Explore real-world examples of organizations that have effectively used them to drive success.
