Design Systems are for People

A presentation at Pixel Up! in in Cape Town, South Africa by Jina Anne

Design Systems grew out of a need to build consistent, cohesive visual experiences across devices and platforms, and to centralize and consolidate design efforts.

While they create a better user experience, increase the efficiency of teams, and improve the quality of products, Design Systems need to be more than just inventories and deliverables, if they are to be successful.

As Jina Anne shows us in her seminar, Design Systems empower change within an organization and form the bedrock of a company’s culture and community. Your design system ultimately serves people: both your customers and your colleagues.

Design systems fail when they lack a vision, a shared language, and purpose. Designers, developers, product managers, and anyone interested in building a successful design system in their business will benefit from this seminar.
