  • Posted to Creating a Design System: The Step-by-Step Guide, Oct 05, 2017

    Earlier this year, I wrote a series of posts describing my work our internal design system.

    I've condensed that experience into an online guide. I tried to make it as thorough and technical as possible:

    Create the UI Inventory for the Design System

    Get Organizational Buy-In for the Design System

    Build a Multidisciplinary Design Systems Team

    Establish Rules and Principles for the Design System

    Build the Color Palette for the Design System

    Build the Typographic Scale for the Design System

    Implement an Icons Library for the Design System

    Standardize Other Style Properties

    Build the First Design System Pattern

    Run a Sprint Retrospective


    Recommended Resources

    Hope you all find it useful!

    Hey everyone,

    Our latest update is pretty straightforward - now you can add prototypes directly to JIRA. You can then quickly access the prototype, comments, specs, and documentation.

  • Posted to UX at Scale 2017: Free virtual event , Aug 23, 2017

    Hey everyone,

    Earlier this week, we released our third virtual summit: UX at Scale 2017.

    Scaling design is one of the biggest challenges faced by UX teams. As a team grows, processes and products eventually break. There's really no getting around it.

    We figured a lot of folks have faced the issue before, so we gathered 14 design leaders across 4 days to share their experience and advice. The speakers come from Atlassian, Salesforce, Airbnb, GE Digital, IDEO, Google, ADP, Linkedin, Shopify, Autodesk, Forumone, Athena Health, and the US government’s internal digital agency (18F).

    Based on past events, we should have 23-28K people registered so it should be a cool turnout. If you can't make it, you can register anyways and recordings and slides will be emailed to you.

    Hey everyone,

    Very excited to release our Material Design UI Kit. Couple of our designers created this as a side project. 35 hi-fi screens and 140+ UI elements for Sketch, Photoshop, and Illustrator.

    Would love any feedback!

  • Posted to Show DN: 2017-2018 Enterprise UX Industry Report, Jul 03, 2017

    Hey everyone,

    Very excited to share the 2017-2018 Enterprise UX Industry Report today. It represents insights from 3,157 designers, product managers, and engineers who work on B2B products.

    We conducted the report because enterprise UX is experiencing a renaissance lately and the sector doesn't always get the recognition it deserves. Here's a few insights from the 41-page report:

    UX is still new to B2B companies:

    Only 26% of respondents report that a full-time UX role has existed for more than 5 years.

    Design consistency is the greatest challenge:

    Improving UX consistency: (59%) Testing designs with end-users (53%) Clarifying requirements (46%) Collaborating between teams (44%)

    Agile rules the day:

    93% of respondents report they follow either an Agile or “Agile-fall” product development process. Roughly 70% of all Agile organizations now use design systems or pattern libraries.

    Salaries and earning potential are strong:

    In the U.S., 72% of all enterprise designers earn at least $75,000 per year.

    We hope this report gives folks a clearer idea of the challenges facing enterprise designers, as well as some of the solutions taking shape. Open to feedback and comments!

    Hey everyone,

    Scaling design is probably the hardest problem in product development. It doesn't really work like engineering. So after 40+ interviews with design leaders and months of hard work, we're really excited to announce our early launch program for Design Systems by UXPin.

    Here's a quick video:

    Right now, companies are building their design systems from scratch as an entity external to their tools. UXPin Design Systems is the first design systems solution that's ready right out of the box in the same environment as your design, collaboration, and dev handoff. Not just a style guide or pattern library, but a complete system of implementation guidelines, assets, interactive patterns, and synced documentation.

    You can import your existing Sketch libraries to get started.

    Design Systems will help product teams: Automate design consistency Automatically update documentation Standardize best practices for design and code When you join the early launch program, you'll get first dibs to try it out. Your feedback will also go directly to our product team to influence the roadmap.

    If you're interested, check it out! You can sign-up here:

    Our goal is to finally make design easily scalable.

  • Posted to Enterprise UX Virtual Summit 2017: 15 free live webinars, Jan 11, 2017

    Hey everybody,

    We're very excited to announce that Enterprise UX Virtual Summit 2017 is now open to registration. Instead of charging $800 a ticket, we're covering all costs so that it's free for everyone.

    Our goal is to gather top practitioners and leaders to share their best practices for enterprise design. We're helping them craft each webinar for practicality by dissecting case studies.

    The 20 speakers from places like IBM, Google, SAP, Asana, Intuit, Core Logic, include: Irene Au - Design Partner at Khosla Ventures

    Jeff Veen - Design Partner at True Ventures

    Leslie Witt - Head of UX for Small Business Products at Intuit

    Lou Rosenfeld - Founder of Rosenfeld Media

    Amanda Linden - Head of Design at Asana Hope this is a viable option for folks who can't always attend UX conferences due to travel or budget issues. Based on our attendance rates for webinars, we're expecting up to 10,000+ registrants.

    Would be great to see some people from DN there!
