Creating a design system that people actually use
- UX / Design
Despite our best intentions, sometimes the work we do just doesn’t get used. Sometimes it’s due to unforeseen circumstances, sometimes it’s because of fundamental process or communication issues, and sometimes it’s down to the implementation. When it comes to design systems, these challenges can be even more difficult because by definition, people from multiple disciplines and teams need to collaborate and be invested in the solution.
I'd like to share my story of creating a design system called Stylabilla - why I think it worked, and why developers, designers and product owners have embraced it across the company.
