Design Systems - what they don't tell you

Design Systems have been a hot topic for the last few years, leading to many designers and developers moving into design systems teams.

What we know about design systems is that they're a code-and-design tool, but what's often missed is how they can be created, maintained, and operationalised.

In this talk we'll look at the full potential impact of design systems, and how you can build yours in a way that helps designers and developers work in a better way, not just faster.
