Some of you may remember Ben Rogers, who gave several excellent talks before he moved to Norfolk, Virginia. Now that the meetings are virtual, he is available to give talks again. I'll post the title and an abstract shortly. We have an opening for a second speaker. Let me know if you can give a talk for this meeting.

Design isn't just an afterthought in tech circles anymore, it truly helps drive the direction of the product or service. But how does a design team help guide the rest of the company in the right direction? By incorporating a design system. A design system is a master collection of the key standardized documentation every company needs to define the overall design of the product.

Incorporating a design system in your company brings lots of tangible value: faster to market times, improved UX and customer satisfaction, better internal communication, and consistency across all products. Join us in this webinar as we continue to discuss why having a design system is so important and gain hands-on experience in creating your own.

What you will learn:

What is a Design System?
Notable Real-World Design Systems
Figma Tips and Best Practices
Creating Our Own System

How to join us: Once you register with Eventbrite, you will receive an email with the links to the live webinar from BigMarker. If you do not receive your link, please email virtual@thinkful.com.
