Talk: Designing a Design System

Product design for web and mobile is evolving at a fast pace. As the range of devices and platforms continues to expand, so do the design considerations. Learn how design systems help a design team build a framework that meets their needs by bringing together all of the critical design components, including style guides, pattern and UI libraries, CSS frameworks, and other resources.

In this session, Jina, lead designer on the Design Systems team at Salesforce UX, will share:

  • Strategies to approach, design, and build an effective design system
  • How to successfully maintain the system to ensure ongoing usefulness
  • Elements that design systems need to be sustainable and that are critical for success

Design systems bring together style guides, patterns, UI libraries, CSS frameworks, and brand to help design teams build clear, efficient, consistent, and beautiful products. But, where does a design team or a solo designer begin? Jina, a designer who has helped build design systems for smaller design agencies and large-scale enterprise ecosystems alike, shares her process and experience so you can begin a design system of your own, and have the structure and insight needed for ongoing success.
