    Building Design Systems and Systems for Building Designers with Ben Callahan

    Building Design Systems and Systems for Building Designers with Ben Callahan

    In this conversation, I talk to Ben Callahan, Sparkbox founder and design system expert. At Sparkbox, Ben has created an amazing workplace that facilitates learning, exploring, asking questions, and pet projects. We talk about how that awesomeness came to be and what’s working well today. (Team leaders, please take notes.)  We also talk about taking time to tinker and figure yourself out—while the world seems to change right underneath your feet.

    Of course, we get into design systems, too.  We nerd out on documentation and discuss how being on the “design system team” can be a great part of company hazing >cough, cough  onboarding.

    If you are revved up to apply for Sparkbox’s apprentice program, here’s your link: https://apprentices.seesparkbox.com/

    Stefanie Krievins is a big hearted, tough love professional career coach with lots of wisdom to give. Fair warning, a few F-bombs are peppered in with that wisdom!
