Virtual Seminar

Cohesive Design Systems for Enterprise

January 2015

92 minutes

  • Inspire designers to unite and share their work
  • Unify your design community within your organization
  • Illustrate how products relate & work together
Topics:

Design systems are often difficult to understand. Some systems give so much value to the organization, but stifle innovation. Defining what we want to accomplish—and how to get there—can be a constant uphill battle if we can’t “paint the picture” of what a cohesive experience looks like. As designers, we need to show how products work together, so we don’t have to create something new every time.

In this virtual seminar, Nathan Curtis demonstrates how to approach design systems and standards across products, teams, and organizations to produce cohesive user experiences at scale. You’ll gain an appreciation for the core of the design system and understand how to promote its value throughout your organization.

  • Inspire designers to unite and share their work

    • Collaborate in smaller groups to align ideas and build trust
    • Corral teams to share their work with executive sponsors and advocates
  • Unify your design community within your organization

    • Build relationships with other designers individually, so you connect as a whole
    • Balance large meetings with smaller, more personal interactions
  • Illustrate how products relate & work together

    • Build prototypes that span products and platforms
    • Show consistency between teams and products

Attend this seminar if:

  • You want to improve how you sell your ideas within your organization
  • You want to grab people’s attention and keep them engaged

If you want to learn how to navigate the system and bond your design community, this seminar is for you.
