In this episode, Jennifer Shannon chats with Varun Vachhar, Director of Technical Strategy, UI Architecture at Rangle, and Catherine Maritan, a Senior Experience Designer at Rangle. Listen as they dive into defining what a Design System is and why it should matter to your organization.

"We always use the analogy with kind of Lego blocks. Being able to, if you design a button once, why do you ever need to design a button again? You've already thought about those interactions and if you build that piece, you don't really have to think about that interaction anymore. Every time you are just coming up with a new design, you take that button and you slot it into the design."
