Events and workshops

Join us for Design System Day

A series of events throughout 2024

Design System Day is the GOV.UK Design System’s flagship event!

It’s an opportunity to collaborate and share knowledge about design systems with like-minded people, covering topics like accessibility, community and decision-making. It’s a space for anyone using design systems in government to share ideas and developments, learn from colleagues, and spark conversations on related topics.

You can sign up to our mailing list to get the latest information on Design System Day events planned for this year.
