How to Spend More Time in the Creative Flow
A few weeks ago we sought to answer that question by bringing in an expert, Dan Mall. Dan Mall, designer who came to talk to the employees at Clevertech about how to maximize their potential with design systems. He talked about how to create them, use them to your advantage, and get your colleagues to integrate it into their daily operations.
A design system is a tool to help the designer become more efficient and effective in their work.
It should help you work faster and better with your team -- and more importantly, have fun! Designers and developers are often reinventing the wheel. Dan Mall explained how to get the tedious work out of the way using design systems. How much time do you want to dedicate to that button, form, or the other dry aspects of a project? Design systems can take care of the boring so you can focus on the fun, exciting and meaningful aspects. Design systems free you up so you can focus on user needs, create a really outstanding product, and spend more time in the creative flow.
How do you pitch using a design system?
Don’t use the word design system! Tie the design system effort to a high-priority roadmap item. Build the product first and then get the design system as an output. The product already has buy-in from everyone, from there you just try it on the product. In the end the real prize is shipping solid work that customers get value out of and use! It looks like the future for design work is pointing designers in the direction of creating effective and usable products with more freedom, flexibility and impact.
