Creating Design Language System workshop

What's on

A hands-on workshop on how to craft, adopt, maintain & measure a sustainable design system.

It will provide you with a framework for thinking about and making your design language system in a way that is centered around needs and values. Spoiler alert: there’s no one-size-fits-all approach, so you’ll need to bring the unique context of your organization to the table!

We highly recommend watching this talk on Design Systems Hayley gave as part of our UX Conference earlier.

Who runs it

The School of UX speaker Hayley Hughes

Hayley from USA 🇺🇸 – UX manager at Shopify. Formerly pioneered the design language at IBM, and led the evolution of the design system at Airbnb. The companies Hayley worked with

As a graphic designer I wanted to gain more of an insight into the world of UX/UI design and I was definitely given the knowledge and tools to be able to apply them into my day to day role.


I took this course as a content designer wanting to learn more about UI and UX. Most other courses don't offer certificates but this one did. So it's great to have actual evidence to place on my CV, LinkedIn and online portfolio.


This was a fantastic week of learning. Each tutor was incredibly helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to start a career in UX and or UI.


I did the UX writing course and it was exactly what I needed. I'm looking forward to finishing the UX/UI cycle with the school of ux and upping this to a 5-star review.
