Tidying Up Digital Homes With Design Systems

Tidying up with Marie Kondo is a phenomenon that has taken the world by storm. Marie Kondo has developed a simple method to help declutter and organize your home. After learning about the KonMari Method of tidying up, I was inspired to try this in my own life. As I went through the steps of the KonMari Method of organization, I realized that I apply similar steps in my everyday work. As an experience designer, I’ve found that design systems are the key to keeping my digital properties organized so that changes and updates can be made seamlessly. When a design system is set up properly, creating new features and templates can happen fairly quickly. This allows us, as designers, to focus on solving user needs and creating an overall better user experience instead of spending our time on mundane tasks of re-creating patterns and modules.

Whether you’re starting from scratch, have an existing system, or need to merge designs from different areas of your organization, in this talk you will learn the six ways you can leverage the KonMari Method when organizing your design system.
