Mini Design System for Mimmit koodaa brand – a collaboration between designers and developers

A design system provides a shared set of design guidelines and elements that enable teams to work more efficiently, facilitating collaboration between designers and developers and ensuring quality throughout the product life cycle.

The workshop simulates the way designers and developers work in projects where a design system is in use. It provides a realistic insight into the collaboration between design and development. By building design and code components together, groups create a mini design system.

You will learn to create a modular design in Figma and/or implement UI components with Storybook. For example, these new skills can be used in client projects where a design system is being used or developed.

Who this workshop is for?

This workshop is suitable for beginner-level designers and developers who approach aspects of design systems through teamwork, such as collaboration, consistency, accessibility, and efficiency. Participants will be collaborating in small groups.

The instructors will be happy to help you out with any problems.
