Shopify‘s new design system Polaris reflects the company’s multidisciplinary approach to building products. It was created in 10 weeks by a group of designers, content strategists, front-end-developers, illustrators, and researchers and the project was led by Amy, a content strategy lead at Shopify. In her talk, Amy will cover how her team tackled the Polaris style guide project and their practical approach to integrating different perspectives throughout the UX process in a meaningful way.
