How to make and share more flexible UI components
Design systems expectations are rising. Today, they must offer powerful features, empower contribution, and ensure features are high quality…on a sometimes tiny budget. Informed by interviews, experiments, and his experience leading design systems as a consultant, Nathan will explore questions that systems encounter like:
- When is a component too complicated, such that you offer smaller parts instead?
- How does increasing component flexibility put efficiency and consistency at risk?
- How can you use Figma’s improved component features to build better?
