Episode 241 is a link show. James and Per discuss two articles that have grabbed their attention – this time the articles are about “privacy privilege” and the gulf between other professionals and web development plus how design systems haven’t perhaps delivered on the expectation to improve collaboration.
Kim Goodwin, three-time guest on UX Podcast and a person we have huge amounts of respect for joins us at From Business To Buttons to talk about decision systems – Design systems are often a good investment, but do they give the highest rate of return? No says Kim, changing how we make decisions gives more.
Jina Anne joins us to talk design systems. Jina has for a number of years worked as the lead designer with the Lightning Design System at Salesforce and has been working with style guides since 2004. We dive right in and ask what a design system. How do you make sure people stick to the design system? How flexible or rigid should it be?
Since its launch in 2014, Google’s design framework – Material Design has been gathering momentum and spreading beyond its original focus of mobile applications.
To lift our knowledge and understanding of what it is all about we are joined by Richard Fulcher, Design Manager on the Material Design systems team at Google. Rich is one of the team at Google who have worked on Material Design since its conception.
We talk about what Material Design is, how it makes use of the physical world in its implementation and how it could be used as a universal design framework.
