Building a Design System In-Flight


Half Day



About the Workshop

Design systems -collections of common components, colors, and other constants- are a key way to scale teams and web applications on the modern web. They're particularly handy for deduplicating frontend development costs for microfrontends and remote teams. But how do you create one from scratch -- or, much more commonly, in-flight from an existing service?

This hands-on workshop will take you through three stages of crafting your design system:

* 1 (Design): Extracting colors, spacing, and typography from your existing brand

* 2 (Design+Dev): Creating components following standard Atomic Design using the first day's designs

* 3 (Design+Dev): Fleshing out components and documenting usage with Storybook and TypeScript
