The value of investing in Design Systems

February 3rd 2021 14:30 – 16:00

In this webinar we bring people together to discuss the business benefits of a Design System and to exchange ideas and solutions on how to build and implement a Design System.

Design system streamlines design and production processes and can significantly increase the speed to market. In short, Design System is a single source of truth about user experience guidelines and company design. The significance of design systems is even more important during Covid era when there is demand for more streamlined ways for collaboration between teams and projects.

We will have two inspiring keynote speeches: Mika Ylinen, Lead Visual designer from Fortum, will tell us how Fortum Design System has successfully become a fundamental part of their design and development workflow and Angelos Arnis, Senior Designer form Posti, will show how traditional organizations can embrace change and build powerful teams that adopt state-of-the-art tooling and ways of working.
