Afternoon Wellness Session, Mindfulness Tools
We will learn simple physical techniques and poses that you can easily do in a chair or at a desk relieving tension and stress that is often created in the body from sitting for periods of time particularly in the neck, shoulders and hips. We will focus on breathe awareness and mindfulness, tools that you can take from your office chair to your day to day life easing stress and anxiety and creating more focus and stability in your life.

SPECIAL UX EVENT: Making & Maintaining Successful Design Systems
Design systems and provide solid ground for us to stand on as we tackle the increasingly diverse and fast-moving digital landscape. This full-day session will tackle everything that goes into making and maintaining successful interface design systems, including:

  • Selling Design Systems – We all know design systems and pattern libraries are great, but how do you get your clients, bosses, and teammates on board? We’ll make the business cases for design systems, and discuss tactics and tools for selling design systems to clients and stakeholders.
  • A Pattern-Based Process – Making modular interfaces requires massive shifts in our design and development process. We’ll discuss why front-end development is an essential part of the design process and demonstrate how tools like lo-fi sketches, style tiles, element collages, Pattern Lab, and others facilitate collaboration—and result in successful design systems.
  • Atomic Design Principles – We’ll cover core principles of modular UI interface design and introduce the atomic design methodology that helps connect your design system design/dev work to your actual product design/dev work.
  • Anatomy of Effective Style Guides – A style guide is the happy home for all a design system’s ingredients. A robust and well-presented style guide can help a design system truly take root at your organization.
  • Design System Maintenance – Like a fine wine, a design system should increase in value over time. We’ll discuss tactics and techniques like team structure, governance models, communication strategies, and more to ensure design system provides lasting value to your organization.
By the end of the day, you’ll be armed with all the insights and resources you need to create and maintain a successful UI design system.


A Premium Package Ticket is available to D4D attendees that includes the full D4D conference + video archive + this additional workshop at a discounted bundle price.
