This week, we dig into questions like: who should design a team’s visual style guide? And: who should break a tie in subjective aesthetic arguments? In The Sidebar, we share our tips and strategies for succeeding as a new designer in a large organization.

This week, we talk about who actually leads UI design within an organization, teasing apart questions like: who should design a team’s visual style guide? Who should break a tie in subjective aesthetic arguments? And more!
It's been challenging to develop a new design system without an existing visual style guide, so I'm trying to explore more about the work behind designing UI when you're not a sole designer.
I've got a feeling that designing UI is quite hard to do collaboratively, as taste is very much subjective to each and every individual.
- What's your experience when it comes to developing a new style guide?
- Does a single designer lead the process (in terms of the visual direction)?
