Design systems are a service: how to keep your customers happy

At Atlassian in the Design Systems team, we’ve started thinking about the design system we build and maintain as a service. But who are the consumers of this service? And what do they want (and need).

In this presentation, I’ll look at how we dig deeply into who the consumers of our systems are, and some of the things we’ve done (some that worked, others that didn’t) in meeting their needs.
