Introducing the Idea
I introduced the idea of building a design system at Genius Sports Services annual away days in Vilnius, Lithuania. I presented a brief overview of my plans to launch the design system project. This presentation was the first step in getting buy in from all team leads that would benefit and contribute to the design system product. A design system is a living product with a roadmap & backlog. It’s an iterative process that combines UX, visual design, development, management and consensus around source of truth. Buy-in was absolutely crucial.
