December 2018: Building a New Design System at D2L
In this talk, Nick Dingle will share some stories and lessons learned from a journey building up D2L’s “Daylight” design system, which is primarily used by D2L’s flagship product Brightspace. How did they get started? How did they get everyone using it? How are they maintaining it? Where do they still need to go? Nick Dingle has been a Product Designer for fifteen years. He started by designing websites for Canadian tv shows and they called him an Information Architect. Then he moved on to designing native mobile apps for communications companies and they called him an Interaction Designer. Now he works as a Senior Product Designer / Team Lead at D2L where he gets to design experiences for teachers and students. He loves his job.
