About Shift

Did you enjoy Shift as much as we did? As we can tell from the many enthusiastic responses, chances are you did! It's always great to take a look at the future, especially when you're in good company. So thank you for being part of the second Shift of the year!

Digital products are constantly changing. A focus group indicates that the design should be different, the company gets a rebranding or the marketing team decides that a button should be replaced to a different location. Every change triggers a chain reaction, which takes a lot of valuable time. To create consistency in their designs, most companies use a design system.

A design system is a well-documented, overarching set of rules and agreements on how to create products and communications by using components. The single source of truth, you might say. Design systems are not only about the design - it’s also impacting the way developers and designers work together. It makes the cooperation run smoother and automates unnecessary work.

The takeaways

Design systems is a team effort, assembling your core team is one of the most important steps & failed design systems are due to a lack of a unified vision, shared language and purpose. Read our full recap here.
