All things Design Systems


Hey Berlin Design Systems Community 👋

We’re excited to announce that the upcoming Berlin Design Systems Coalition meetup will take place on the 11th of June at Contentful! We’ll have 3 inspiring talks and an open round of lightning talks. We’ll provide snacks and drinks and are looking forward to gathering the design systems community!

What to expect from the talks?

The Zalando Design System Team will share their experience of building a design system at Europe’s largest e-commerce company. We will get insights on the shared language and the contribution process required to unite designers, developers and product managers in collaborating to create consistent, compelling experiences at scale.

Clemens Morris who is a Systems Designer at N26 will share how they kickstarted their Design System, starting with initial interviews, defining and implementing their visual fundamentals to setting the foundation for future collaboration.

The Contentful Design Team will give a short introduction to the Forma 36 design system. We will give an overview of the general architecture of that system and share which challenges we are facing migrating our frontend.

We can’t wait to meet all of you and build a strong community of design systems workers and enthusiasts!
