Head of Design at The Black Tux, DJ Brinkerhoff, will be speaking about designing design system systems. Sharing ideas for files, components, processes, and the humans that deal with them. As we know, design systems are becoming increasingly important to creating great product experiences, but with so many methods to choose from, how do you decide what is right for you? DJ will share his experiences leading the charge for better systems at The Black Tux and in his previous role as Director of Product Design at The Atlantic.
