3. Shaping Design Systems by John Bevan, Conjure
In the session, we’ll be tackling everything that goes into creating and scaling a successful interface design system. We’ll cover the Anatomy of design systems and design language, looking at the structure behind design systems, including how to shift design and development processes and then implement them successfully. We’ll cover selling design systems talking business cases for design systems, and steps to get started. We’ll cover elemental design principles, looking at the core principles of componentized UI interface design and how atomic design helps accelerate, simplify, and unify product delivery across design and development work. And finally, we’ll discuss scaling design systems. As you scale products and platforms, and effective design system should increase in value over time. We’ll talk about tools, techniques, and practices to ensure your organization can leverage your design system.
4. Accessibility in Design Hinges on “Uncovering” Ourselves by Stacey Seronick, IBM
According to longitudinal research performed by Google on what makes for high-performing teams, and confirmed by my own and my colleagues’ experiences, the common thread is a sense of psychological safety on the team – the sense that it’s okay to learn from mistakes and it’s okay to be yourself, whatever that may mean. Creating that feeling of safety on a team, and by extension, a whole enterprise, takes work, and the first step is allowing our true and whole selves to shine. The benefits of doing this for our health and wellness are innumerable, yet it’s the value we bring to our teams that ends up helping the business’ bottom line. We can help others to feel that they can do the same – stop “covering” up what is perceived as a flaw and embrace their whole and true selves.
