Your Design System Team Is Part of the Product (Video)

07-01-19 Drew Clemens

We often talk about how design systems are a product. But sometimes we miss that design system teams are also part of that product. Drew explores this idea in his video.

Whether you are part of a design system team or just considering one, we’d like you to know that these systems are more than code and documentation. Sparkbox has learned from several years of experience that well-built components, nicely designed UIs, and excellent documentation are only half the battle. The design system team—and how that team engages with the users of its product—is an extremely important factor in a system’s success.

If you are new to the concept of design systems or just want to learn more, we’ve put together a great resource list here in the Foundry. Check out the results to our 2019 Design Systems Survey to learn more about building and maintaining design systems.

If you can’t tell, this is an area we’re passionate about. If you ever have questions, feel free to reach out.

Happy building!
