Systems thinking is at the core of digital product design. To build products and experiences that are scalable and functionally efficient, designers must take a rigorous approach to design systems. Join Fabricio Teixeira, design partner at Work & Co, to discover how magic can emerge from bending the rules of these systems. To create products millions of people love to use every day, designers must know when and how to break that same system — and push the boundaries of technology.

In this session, you’ll explore:

  • Essential approaches to UX in design systems
  • The origin of systems thinking from Bauhaus and other design movements
  • How to foster and grow traits that are common among strong systems thinkers
  • Opportunities to break the system and make your work more inspired and ownable
