At Pattern we are seeing organizations in both public and private sectors moving towards implementing their own design systems to improve consistency of user experiences inside of their mobile and web applications.  

Design systems, are made up of a collection of re-usable components, with accompanying guidelines that drive teams to develop consistent user experiences across all digital assets.

For larger organizations, having a design system not only helps the user experience of their digital solutions, but can also prove to be a boon for productivity in the creation of these experiences.  A well developed and tested component set can lead to faster time to market for your applications.

In this series of blog posts I'm going to attempt to go through the process of creating a re-usable component set using Xamarin.Forms, based on the Australian Government design system.  https://designsystem.gov.au .
