Evolving the Australian Government Design System

The Agriculture Design System (AgDS) is the Design System built for the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Export Service.

AgDS is based on the GOLD, the former Australian Government Design System which was decommissioned in 2021.

In this talk, Jordan will walk through how the Department of Agriculture took the design principles and visual language of GOLD to build a modern and accessible design system.
