Versioning in July: Design Systems and Living Style Guides

An overview of the stuff happening in July!

Versioning consists of a daily newsletter, plus daily updates with content on a relevant, important subject.

This month, that subject is Design Systems and Living Style Guides!

If all of this sounds fun, sign up for a free 14-day trial here (you can cancel any time).

July will be focused on design systems and living styleguides. Both form part of a new movement towards designers and developers establishing rules designed to make collaboration easier, improve design quality, and generally increase sanity levels. Think: building with Lego blocks vs. clay. This is exciting stuff, I’m looking forward to learning more with you.
