Semantic Design System (Part -3): The Open Design System Ontology

[NOTE: Check the part 1 at : https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/photo-essay-semantic-design-system-part-1-gaps-todays-samir-dash/ and part 2 at https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/photo-essay-semantic-design-system-part-2-nuclear-model-samir-dash/]

This originally part of a talk I gave at UX-India Pre-Conference Meetup at Symbiosis College, Bengaluru on 1st September 2018, titled: Semantic Design System — Redefining Design Systems for DesOps . The talk explored the existing implementations of design-systems and will be making an attempt to provide high-level approach to define design systems for the next-gen enterprises.

“Design System” plays a critical role in bringing a common language and consistency in experience across different products and brands of the organisation, along with fuelling a collaborative approach towards design, making it easier for different team members to contribute.

Semantic Design System (Part -1) : The Gaps in Today’s Design Systems

This originally part of a talk I gave at UX-India Pre-Conference Meetup at Symbiosis College, Bengaluru on 1st September 2018, titled: Semantic Design System — Redefining Design Systems for DesOps . The talk explored the existing implementations of design-systems and will be making an attempt to provide high-level approach to define design systems for the next-gen enterprises.

“Design System” plays a critical role in bringing a common language and consistency in experience across different products and brands of the organisation, along with fuelling a collaborative approach towards design, making it easier for different team members to contribute.

With observation of design systems, we can notice, almost all of them are having different structure and approach to define these, and almost none of them can be directly used in automation of design as they are not semantic in nature. Therefore most of these current approaches to design systems are not future-proof for tomorrow’s design operations (DesOps). Here I coin the “Semantic Design System”, that address this issue, and focuses building a design system, that is equally human-readable and at the same time understood by the machine for the next generation of design operation with automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence. The talk also introduces, what Samir believes as “Nuclear Design”, an modelling approach that helps to lay out a framework that is the foundation for building design systems with semantics.
