The 2020 report cites Blink’s work with NASA.

Blink, a user experience research and design company, today announced its inclusion in “Build Better Products Faster With Design Systems” from Gartner.

According to Gartner, “A design system is one of the most important strategic assets for your company. It is a living digital product that requires a team, a plan and a set of specialized tools.” 1

Blink understands this. That’s why Blink works with product teams to develop design systems that are extensible and expressive. We collaborate with organizations of all sizes and across industries.

“Product teams that are employing design systems are able to iterate faster with more consistency in product development,” says Geoff Harrison, Blink’s chief design officer. “Improvements and convergence between design and development tools will continue to increase the importance of the design system as the central workshop of product creation.”
