The First GOV.UK Design System Assembly

I had a great time talking today with the other members of the first GOV.UK design system assembly.

I was invited to the first design system assembly today, representing LocalGov Drupal

Design Systems represented:

  • GovUK design system
  • Scottish Government design system
  • Welsh Government design system
  • Ministry of Justice design system
  • NHS design system
  • Department of Work and Pensions design system
  • Home Office design system
  • LocalGov Drupal 


  • Introductions
  • What are people working on?
  • How can we make the feedback loop between what we build and how it's used shorter?
  • How can we share components/patterns between design systems?

Next up?

Another assembly will be called for us to explore things some more, and see what happens.
