Hi there! 👋

My name is Josh Black. I build design systems at IBM.

This site is a growing collection of my thoughts and experiences while working on software. Some of it is short or incomplete, others are ideas that turned out to be completely wrong. My hope is that by sharing my personal journey I can help others in some way.

I write most often about design systems and the process around building them. Some of these are hard-earned lessons, others are the craziest of experiments. Other times, I'll share more about my personal journey navigating my own career and life.

In terms of this place, it's very much so at the beginning. I'm excited to grow it throughout the year, and I'm hoping that what I share can help you in some way.

If anything I'm writing about is something you'd like to talk more about, feel free to reach out over on Twitter.
