Why do we need an IT design system?

Presented by: Megan Holman, Kedar Joyner & Isaac Evavold

Room: Nicholas Hall (2080)

Time: 11:15-11:35 AM

Description:

University designers and developers are tasked with making more products, services, content, and functionality for more people, on more devices, on more browsers, and in more environments than ever before. This stream of “more” isn’t going away soon, and in order to keep up, teams will be more successful if they start with a solid foundation.

This is where a design system comes in. Done right, design systems have the ability to revolutionize the workflows of designers and developers. During the talk, there will be an overview of why we need a design system, the status of the project, and how it could help other teams when developing new products.
