Dan Donald

Anatomy of themed design system components

As a design system matures, we come across new concepts that help us make it better. There’s new requirements that come along, design changes we couldn’t anticipate. Design systems support consistency but also vehicles for communication and change. Here we look at how you can introduce design tokens considering theming and really bring out the power of what your system can be.

About Dan

Dan is Design Advocate for a design system documentation tool called zeroheight. Loves nerding out of people's design systems journeys and design tokens. Outside of that, he makes music, keeping that inner angsty teenager happy.
