Behind the Screens: Creating a lean design system

Mark Boyes-Smith


Get an inside view on how the team at InVision, a company which has been remote for its entire 11-year history, uses InVision Freehand to transform what it means to collaborate. In this session, Mark Boyes-Smith, Director of Product Design, will share how his team crafts a robust foundation and builds adoption and understanding among consumers of our internal design system. Taking a design system from concept to production can be tough but Mark will be sharing exercises and resources that helped frame his team’s thinking.
