A web designer shared a link that contains more than 90 resources on creating, maintaining and using design systems. All of these resources focus on the user experience. Their purpose is to help the website creator understand the ins and outs of design systems. The resources form a syllabus that a web designer could use in order to understand more about design systems. This would allow the web designer to make an informed decision about which system to use when they are working on a project for their employer, their client or themselves.
The syllabus starts with what is a design system and includes several introductory chapters, each one by a different respected web designer. The second section is about why design systems are important. The third section gets into how a design system is different from a user interface kit. Getting team buy-in is the next section. After that, the syllabus includes a section on creating a design system, building the design system and laying the foundation of the design system. From there, the course gets into establishing a brand and applying consistent styles, documentation and naming styles and maintaining a design system. Scaling a design system comes next, and another section goes into closing the gap between website designers and developers. Collaboration of design systems is the last section.
A few people took a look at this resource and had some comments for the original person who shared it. One person said that they bookmarked the site so that they can refer to it on a regular basis when an issue comes up or when they need some help on a particular part of the web design process. Another person replied and said that they tend to make a lot of bookmarks to resource lists like this and forget to actually refer to the resources when they have a problem. Another person shared a resource that they have used on user interfaces and web design that was not included in this extensive syllabus. It seems like a lot of people will get a lot of help from it.
