For the last decade, systematic design and development practices have been growing and growing. It’s no wonder that, once we put a name on this snowball (hello, design systems), it only picked up speed. If you manage more than one site, if you support more than one brand, if you want to be more efficient, more consistent, or more unified in your product-building approach—this is the event for you.

In this virtual learning event, Ben Callahan will dig into the four major concepts covered by the Design System maturity model developed through years of interviews and industry-wide surveys:

  • The stages of design system maturity
  • How a design system’s origin story impacts its path through maturity
  • A framework for maturing in a healthy way
  • A framework for maintaining stability

Then we’ll look at each maturity stage in greater detail to understand

  • Common characteristics
  • Primary challenges
  • Core priorities
  • Next steps for your system

Join this presentation and Q&A session that will reframe the way you think about your design system.
