Here’s Chris with some excellent thoughts on the idea of a Global Design System. Between this post and our ShopTalk Show conversation, there’s some great stuff to respond to!

Chris spells out a lot of tough questions and challenges around bringing something like this to life, and his conclusion sums things up quite nicely:

That feels like I’m being awfully critical. Sorry! Like I said, I like the enthusiasm and I do think there is potential here. But to realize the potential, I think you need to ask really hard questions and have really strong answers. Ultimately I sincerly hope it can be done. Having a super robust go-to set of components that are essentially vetted by the world would be awesome. I think it will take very strong set of principals and leadership to get there.

I’ll sink my teeth into some of Chris’s questions in a forthcoming post! What a fantastic way to advance the conversation.
