How to build your design system from start to finish

In the design system ecosystem, there are two things that are always hard to find:

  1. Visual representations of design system processes
  2. Practical templates to copy and use

Well, it's time to make a change. Mark Reynolds, one of our advisors, created both at once.

We are happy to share with you the Design System Process Miro Board available to copy and use from the Miroverse. This template is a blueprint for almost everything you need to consider when creating, growing, and scaling your design system.

The board goes through each of the main areas: Audit & Research, Strategy & Planning, and Execution. Each area is broken down further into Activities, Actions and Outcomes. Simply copy the template directly in Miroverse to start using with your team in a matter of seconds.
