Design systems are critical for creating cohesive and effective user interfaces. In this session, we’ll unpack the essential components of design systems and discuss how each contributes to a stronger and more unified digital product. Participants will receive a clear, detailed breakdown of design tokens, components, patterns, documentation, and governance processes that form the backbone of any well-structured design system.
