Experience Design Digest #122 – Figma AI Plugins, Design Direction & Process

Figma AI Plugins, Design Direction & Process

“We kicked off with a clear problem definition that resonated with stakeholders deeply. We collected evidence that the problem exists and provided a step-by-step plan for resolving it.”
Andrey Sundiev


Design Direction As A Step Before Design System
Andrey Sundiev talks about the importance of setting Direction before getting too far with the implementation of a Design System and we couldn’t agree more. Sometimes we even need to retrofit the Direction for enterprise software clients, that is after some progress has already been made with a Design System but when inconsistencies are beginning to occur. The Direction is key to resolving those inconsistencies and to working towards lower maintenance costs and higher operational efficiency in the long term.
