On July 24th we’re partnering with the Design & Content Conference (, TELUS Digital (, and the DesignX Community ( to bring an extra bit of fun to Vancouver through an exciting panel on Design Systems.
To make a bit more room we’re hosting the panel at The Rio Theatre in East Vancouver. The event is free to everyone, but there are only 400 tickets so you'll need to sign up for the Style & Class Meetup and get a ticket quickly! Tickets will be released on Tuesday June 26th at 9AM PDT.

"Design systems are always evolving, and the way you share and encourage adoption of new iterations will evolve along the way as well.” –Diana Mounter, Design Systems Manager at GitHub

Building a library of design patterns, rules, and UX guidelines prevent inconsistencies when shipping products at scale. A design system can shape the experiences we create and also the experiences we have when creating. Collaborating at scale is complex and systems need to have both rules and remain flexible to survive in the wild. As we grow, so does the diversity of our design system teams, and collaborating becomes more complex. This shift demands we consider every relationship — from pixels to people. Join us and learn from leaders scaling systems at Google, TELUS, Abstract, and Shopify.
