Davy Fung is a Design Manager of Design Systems for Disney Streaming, supporting Disney+, Star+, and Hulu. He’s one of the first designers on the Disney+ product design team, and has worked the last few years trying to build patterns that are flexible across TV, Web, and Mobile. While his team manages the libraries used by product designers, the team prides themselves in their direct partnerships with front end development and work with them daily to continuously improve the design delivery and documentation practices.
The design-to-development stage often is a major source of friction in even the most mature of product teams. Stemming that traditionally, designers and developers perform different tasks when it comes to product development. But what happens when friction is reduced and design handovers are successful?
Following the journey of building the design system at Disney Streaming, Davy will talk through how they established a successful relationship between, design, engineering & product by creating a unique design delivery process. He will touch on:
- What a successful design delivery looks like;
- Understanding what the limitations of designers & engineers are;
- The importance of touchpoints to improve overall communication; and
- How this process has improved team dynamics and the product overall
