UX expert Robert Whiting will talk about design systems, including aspects such as style guides and pattern libraries, which all aid in the production of a consistent, usable interface. They help speed up, standardise and streamline development, and yet are often ignored and therefore unused.

Rob is currently working as head of user experience for The Spencer Group. Prior to this, he has helped design better experiences for Eurostar, BBC, The Royal Mail Group and ebuyer.
