The things that can’t get past, and also the past that we cannot seem to remember.

PROJECT

(

)

an invitation to reframe how the country discusses the role and history of its Black citizens

Your privilege is not your fault, but it is your responsibility.

If they come for me in the morning, they will come for you in the night.

ANGELA DAVIS

Let's be redwoods.

Learn from our fallen ancestors.

Protect our
most vulnerable.

Stand tall,
and join roots.

ANGELA DAVIS

We must learn to lift
as we climb.

We must learn to join
as we grow.

Systems of Systems

By Tatiana Mac

Systems of Systems

Design systems create an umbrella to to define the future of our design work. But design systems are not the biggest umbrella, so to speak—they exist under broader social, political, and infrastructural systems that affect the parameters, limitations, and variables of our system. Investigating design systems across many verticals, we'll look to see how design systems are impacted by the systems they live within. And beyond the verticals, we'll look to see how broader systems of power and oppression influence the design systems, and ultimately, the users who use the products defined by them. We'll look to see how to assess where our design systems live in broader ecosystems, the challenges inherent, and how to lean into the good, and resist the bad, to ensure we're serving all humans in an equitable and ethical way, maintaining safety and trust.
