Fresh perspectives

Hack the design system

A new book by Idean and Adobe

A design system aligns an organization around creating awesome experiences. It’s a living set of tools, practices, and guidelines that enables you to deliver consistent experiences and brand messaging at scale and over time. And in a world of constant change, design systems are becoming more crucial than ever.

Idean have joined forces with Adobe to bring you a new book that explores fresh perspectives on designing and implementing design systems in large organizations. Put together by Idean’s design system experts, the book brings together their 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.

Together, this book provides a comprehensive view on creating and running design systems for global companies.
