Creating Design Language System workshop

25 May 2021, 13:00–18:00 (UK)
Remote via live video
£159–£199 + tax

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 Hughes – 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

What we'll cover

You will walk away with guidance on how to create a system that can enable creativity, serve whole teams, and be resilient in the face of organizational change. Show moreShow less

  • First, we’ll share steps on the creation of a system. With purpose, process, and patterns in mind, we’ll walk through the details that tie your design language to a holistic brand experience.
  • Second, we will deep dive on adoption strategies. Together we’ll create a maturity model that breaks the whole system into parts teams can adopt over time.
  • Lastly, we’ll talk about how to maintain and measure the health of a system. We’ll focus on service design topics like feedback loops, contribution, and sustainable infrastructure.
