Peak Style Guide

Brad Frost, responding to last week’s Newsletter where I mentioned that a style guide doesn’t need to be a big fancy display for the world to see.

But I don’t think these style guide logos and mascots Chris refers to are simply gratuitous visual wankery. It reflects an organization’s commitment to making and maintaining a thoughtful, deliberate design system.

My worry isn’t that big fancy style guides in and of themselves are a problem, but other orgs see them and think “we don’t have the time or resources for that.”
