A Design System helps to unify all members of a product team with a shared common design language. This methodology helps to accelerate the design process and remove engineering debt as there is a consistency that can be adopted through the entire collaboration set. A design system helps us to design at scale with empowerment tied to a single design language.
At its core, a Design System is about collaboration and communication. This is not a single deliverable, but a collection of assets, styles and templates in a master online system that can be shared in real time across product and design teams. The ultimate goal is to create a common design language that can be represented across multiple teams and touch points.

I pretty much live in the water. As a Marine Mammal and Shark diver at the Shedd Aquarium, I am lucky enough to be on the dive team for aquarium conservation. As a certified Dive Master I spend my time exploring the majestic shipwrecks of Lake Michigan. Please see some video footage of these haunting wrecks.
