Deeper design system conversations
What is The Question?
The Question is a very simple form of collaborative learning. Smart people like you sign up to participate because you are looking for a community of design system practitioners that aren't satisfied with the status quo.
Here's how it works. On Monday of each week, I'll email you a question or two. You'll have 48 hours to answer, after which time I'll close The Question and start analyzing the responses.
Anyone who responds receives an invite to a 60 minute call on Thursday at Noon Eastern of that same week. On this call, I'll share a FigJam file with the aggregated results, a few insights I've gathered, and then open the floor for some guided discussion.
We'll have some surprise guests, some deep design system conversations, and some fun along the way. So many very sharp folks are onboard for this journey. I would love for you to be one of them. Sign up below and come along.
Who is this for?
One thing you’ll notice about those of us interested in design systems—we are wildly inquisitive people. And even beyond this, we’re willing to share the things we’re learning. The Question is built on this foundation of curiosity and contribution.
I've also noticed there is a real desire for deeper conversations in our community. My intention is that The Question will give us some incentive to dig in and learn from each other. If this is you, welcome. You are now part of a community of people who have committed to stay in learning mode. Thanks for being here.
Sponsored by Sparkbox
Major thanks to my company, Sparkbox, for sponsoring this effort. If you need some design system expertise alongside your teams, we would genuinely be happy to collaborate with you.
How do I participate?
Simply fill out the form above and you’ll be included. There is no obligation to answer each week, but your invitation to join in the conversation is dependent on you responding.
Got a burning question?
Submit a question to be answered by the community. Of course, no guarentees—but I'll add it to the list. Besides, if you're curious about something, there's a good chance others are too!
