Let’s chat about your design system

When the inventor of the modern design system names you as the number one person she’d hire to build a design system, well then I jump! I’m grateful she put us in contact.

—Tara Kelly, Director Of Product Design at Second Measure

I appreciated the specific experience OddBird brought to bear in terms of building component libraries, particularly the need to incrementally import the component library in order to have it successfully be used.

—Matthew King, Engineering Manager at Second Measure
