O'Reilly Media—Building a Design System
Before we could ship, learn and iterate we had to lower the design and tech debt that accrued over years. In three months, we created a living material design library. A system built by design to work for product and marketing. This design library freed up our new squads of Engineering, Product Managers and Designers. Today they spend more time on UX flows and application logic vs creating and interpreting pixel perfection. In less than a year we ramped up shipping velocity by 10x.
Our custom made design system was supported by an online portal. Architectural wise our design system is a flexible framework comprised of React components. This gave us the necessary building materials (coded design, copy, and motion components) to quickly architect and ship product solutions for our customers.
