Hola friends- we just dropped the Design Systems Handbook on DesignBetter.co today. It’s co-written by some excellent humans including Marco Suarez, Jina Anne, Roy Stanfield, Katie Sylor-Miller, and Diana Mounter. Tasty illustrations by Jack Daly.
This is one of my personals favs alongside the Design Leadership Handbook; supremely practical/relevant and a good primer for any team looking to dig in deep and set up a system themselves (or as a guide for helping convince a client/stakeholder of the merits/gains of investing in one).
Hope you dig it and find helpful! Let us know what other topics you want to see explored in long-form like this.
Man, this is awesome! Congratulations on the launch. I've been working on a practical crash course on creating a design system. This is gonna help me a ton with all the theory! Thank you :)
It would be nice if this was available in print and audio book form! :) This is content I would love to consume on my commute
Totally agree with you here Liam and its something we're def looking at adding over time. We have an audio version of our first book 'Principles of Product Design' which you can check out at the top of each of the chapter heads. We are looking to add similar options for the others in the future. As a TOTAL audiobook junky I'm right there with you and championing the cause here internally for executing on that. ;)
Stoked to check this out!
It's a good time to be discovering this upon my due to lunchtime. Will have a read!
So much content, amazing!
