Applying Product Thinking Principles to your Design System
You've planted the seeds of your design system. Maybe you've built out a few components and set up a basic Storybook. But where do you go from here?
It can be easy to let your inner perfectionist take over and try to cover every scenario and edge case, especially when referencing established design systems. However, a more effective approach is to treat your design system as a product that grows and evolves with your users. Ultimately, its value lies in the problems it solves and the needs it meets.
In this talk, I’ll explore how to apply product thinking principles to your design system, interweaving examples from my own experience as a design system engineering lead.
