Design systems promise workflow efficiency, user experience consistency, and a vocabulary to help everyone speak the language of design. Few design systems are built on a blank slate though, we’re often working with hundreds of lines of code and years of design debt before we even begin, so it takes time to deliver on that promise. This talk will take us on a journey into working with color in design systems—one of the most contentious and critical elements of design. From human perception to programmatically generating colors, we'll take a look at the work involved in building design systems from a colorful perspective.
Special Note: Designers + Geeks will be hosting a professional photographer from Meetup.com at this event. The photographs may be used in Meetup's marketing initiatives. We're honored to be recognized by Meetup as a strong community. Guests will be asked to sign a release for these photos, just FYI!
