Audit of design and development processes

You are looking into more effective working processes between your design and development teams? I can help with it. Combining both academic and practical (15+ years of experience in the industry) knowledge, I can audit your existing processes and practises and provide relevant suggestions for future transformation. Using your resources more efficiently, you will be able to achieve more on the product level rather than struggling with the routines.

Such a project could be a pre-phase for a supervised transformation or work on its own.

Here is how it happens:


We have a remote video meeting to discuss your organisation, projects, and goals. Chatting with you, I get all the context needed for further steps.


I interview your designers, developers, managers, and all people related to creating, using, and supporting your design system.


I examine the artifacts you have such as design documentation, codebase, tools, and the ways these tools are used.


I gather all the information and analyse it to form the full picture of your design system structure and status, outline the issues and the areas for potential improvement. The report I provide you with contains certain suggestions, steps, and tricks to apply for overcoming the revealed issues and implementing the impact-generating improvements.


When you read the report, we have a remote video meeting once again, and I present you with the findings and suggestions from the report. In this session, we can discuss your perspective and plans towards an enchanced design system and well-tailored processes.

You can hire me and the whole Bridge-the-Gap team to set up, manage, develop, and champion your design system. I can align the design and development processes in your organisation for a larger business impact.
