Design systems increase the speed of development across teams, as well as make your applications look and feel consistent. In this course, you’ll create a design system from scratch and learn the foundational design concepts that go into one. You’ll design your components using Figma, then take those designs and turn them into coded components using React. Finally, you’ll animate those components, document them with Storybook, and deploy your Storybook application so you can share it with your team!

This course and others like it are available as part of our Frontend Masters video subscription.


Some Key Takeaways!

By coding along with us in the Workshop, you’ll:

  • Foundational knowledge of what a design system is, who’s building them, and the benefits and drawbacks
  • Learn foundational design skills like color theory, typography, and spacing to build a design kit in Figma
  • Build accessible, reusable components with React and styled components
  • Add micro-interactions to our component with React Spring
  • Document our component with Storybook
  • Learn tools and resources for scaling your design system
