I absolutely love love love this presentation by Yesenia Perez-Cruz (@yeseniaa)‏. In it, she talks about creating a design system to power Vox Products’ suite of websites, each of which that have their own strong, individual personalities.

Yesenia’s talk is especially relevant considering the recent conversations I’ve had about design systems sucking the creativity and humanity out of designs, and handcuffing designers from doing exception design work (discussed here).

So big hats off to Yesenia and her team at Vox! And oh hey, there’s a video of her talk as well!
