Scaling Your User Interface With A Design System

We spend so much time thinking about how our applications scale, do we give the same amount of thought towards how our user interfaces scale? Technology products can span across a multitude of platforms from web to native to desktop, mobile, and tablet. Companies can change and evolve. Crunch time doesn't allow us the care and forethought needed to build a consistent impactful user interface. Let me share with you how a Design System, consisting of a library of repeatable components and standards guiding the use of those components, can help your team scale your application across a variety of platforms.
