In June, Idean and Adobe released a new book, Hack the design system. This book brings together various design experts’ rich and diverse experience in creating design systems for global companies. Backed by industry research, best practices, and real-world challenges, the book gathers insights from over 20 design leaders from companies such as AT&T, Dell, Airbnb, Cisco, IBM, and Microsoft. At this event, you’ll receive a hard copy of this book.
