Building out a new design department
When I became the Design Systems Manager at GoGuardian my focus was on building out our DesignOps department. This is the design principle that drives all DesignOps initiatives:
Force multiplying designers through support, tooling and processes that help elevate designers at GoGuardian.
These are the areas that DesignOps is actively tackling:
Accessibility and Inclusion
Areas where DesignOps will not focus:
- Designer Career Leveling - Director of Design responsibility
- Designer Work allocation/assignment - Director of Design and Project Management Organization responsibility
