Design systems training

Accelerate and bring consistency to your design process

A design system is a set of reusable components and design principles that allows you to achieve consistency and efficiency when designing at scale. It can bridge the gap between design and development and help teams focus on unique design problems instead of reinventing the wheel.

This is all the more important today, as organisations have become increasingly digital-centric. The complexity in building and maintaining experiences across multiple touchpoints has created many challenges, lots of disparate artifacts and inconsistent designs. Creating a robust design system that actually works is now a necessity.

Taking this hands-on course will give you the understanding, actionable knowledge and practical advice to begin developing a design system that your organisation can leverage and use successfully.

You'll finish the day knowing how to:

  • Recognise the benefits of a design system
    Learn how a design system can improve the efficiency and consistency of your designs
  • Understand process and challenges to creating successful design systems
    Know the importance of having a vision, getting buy-in and what needs to be done before jumping in and building a system
  • Choose the right tools and processes
    From Sketch, InVision, React or custom tooling, there are multiple methods to building out a design system - learn which is right for you
  • Design, build and maintain a pattern library
    Learn how to put together designs in a scalable and modular way, and create a workflow for others to follow
  • Define guidelines and a governance model
    Know how to use and maintain a design system once it's up and running, ensuring it's used to direct design thinking across your organisation
