Scalable Fedora Design - Embracing Design Systems


1. What is your proposal?

Do you know the Fedora website uses 6 different shades of the Fedora blue? Even the font size is specified in different forms for different elements - sometimes it’s percentage, sometimes ems and sometimes even px or rems. I feel it’s the time for Fedora to embraces a design system to ensure consistency and manage design debt.

A design system unites teams around a common visual language. It reduces design debt, accelerates the design process, and builds bridges between teams working.

Many teams are now taking a more systematic approach to design by using Design Systems. But What is actually is a design system? What makes a well-functioning system? What do effective systems have in common? Finally, how can Fedora actually go about laying the foundations for a shared design language?

These are some questions to which I will share my answers with the community.


2. What’s in for the community?

Fedora Design Contributors can learn about how they can improve the current Fedora Ecosystem using design systems and how to actually get started with the process of creating a unified system for Fedora. For Developers, it will be an opportunity to learn about implementing the design system in production as well as learn more about the one of the biggest buzzword of design industry of 2018.


3. Target Audience

Everyone who is curious about design and client-side applications. A great talk for Fedora Design contributors. Developers dealing with Web and Client Side Application can get an insight about building production level Design System

Is it possible to expand the audience a little bit beyond just Design contributors? You mention developers in section 2 but not section 3....

Yeah, absolutely. Devs working with client-side part can definitely benefit from this. I'll update the description.
