“Design System in 90 Days” Workbook
If you’re like most of my clients, you work at an enterprise organization on its second or third attempt at a design system that truly powers all of its digital products. In the first few tries, perhaps you ended up with some great libraries that just didn’t get used as much as you’d hoped. (We call those “design system graveyards.”)
How do you avoid this? You focus relentlessly on adoption, starting on Day 1. You hold that as the focus for every activity you do by understanding clearly what teams need out of your design system while you iterate on it constantly and smartly in a way that scales.
I made this workbook to show you and your team exactly how to do that. I’ve spent the last few years workshopping this sequence of 52 activities that, when repeated over the next 90 days and beyond, plant seeds that eventually blossom into a healthy design system practice. These are the steps I’ve used with many enterprise teams to help them create digital products efficiently, consistently, and in a way that’s a lot of dang fun!
You'll get the 130-page “Design System in 90 Days” workbook PDF, a 🚀 Design System Command Center FigJam file with 30 prompts, and a Figma file with 2 template pages.
