Next up at #Clarity2019: @_dte on Where We Can Go: an exploration of what tools could be like if they treated design systems as the building material: clarityconf.com/session/where-…
@_dte Dan's origin story involved building a robot from a subscription magazine that sent out pieces one at a time, and after everyone had their completed robot the magazine shared pictures of how some people had customized their robot design, which he found really cool. #Clarity2019
@_dte Visualizations are an interesting way to illustrate the compound effects of an instruction: top row, lines are drawn with a linear instruction outward, creating a spiky feel; bottom row they're given a random direction, creating a smoky feel. #Clarity2019

Localized avatars to be more representative of the end user in each country. So cool @MinaMarkham #clarity2019 #localization #designsystems
. @MinaMarkham on her process for localizing styles for @SlackHQ in Japan:
1. Design research
2. First iteration of designing the webpage
3. Design with cultural elements
4. Hide animation unless you have JavaScript enabled in browser
Note: localize w/ extreme care #clarity2019
It's important to localize styles with extreme care, respect and cultural appreciation (not cultural appropriation).

Good morning, we're back for day two of #Clarity2019! I'm live tweeting the sessions again, starting with @MinaMarkham on Full-Featured Art Direction for the Web!

clarityconf.com/session/full-f…
@MinaMarkham “What is art direction?”

Quoting @danmall: "Art direction combines art and design to evoke a cultural and emotional reaction.”

I.e. “Design is the how, Art direction is the why.”

@MinaMarkham @danmall “A design system is, at its foundation, a set of rules.”

Rules that govern how you create products for your specific brand. But note: rules and creativity are not mutually exclusive! Rules _can_ be broken is your use case evoke that.
