Last January Mozilla unveiled its new logo and brand identity, which has continued to evolve in the months since. We have a lot of websites at Mozilla, literally hundreds, and every one of them instantly became outdated as soon as the new logo was released. A new brand sets off dozens of redesigns across the entire Mozilla ecosystem. That's an awful lot of pixels moving in a lot of different directions. We need a plan. Although the branding comes with some overall guidelines, we're still shaping our idea of what a Mozilla website should look like under this new identity. This is a great opportunity to shed a few preconceptions and adopt a fresh, modern approach to designing websites. In this session I'll talk about breaking away from old-school design processes, to think beyond designing pages and think about designing complete systems. You'll learn about what design systems are and how they can bring greater clarity and consistency to the way we express ourselves on the web. I'll talk about what we're doing to develop our own cohesive design system for Mozilla websites and how it can make our sites better, for both the makers and the users. This session is for designers, developers, content creators, marketers, and anyone else who makes websites. I hope to change the way you think about web design, and maybe the way you think about the world. I'll also have stickers.
