    Why and how are creative agency leaders and traditional graphic designers finding their way into DesignOps? What is the future of DesignOps within traditional design agencies?

    Most who are looking into the DesignOps space know it for its focus on the Ps: People, Process, Practice — mostly for technology, and mostly for Product design.

    In this talk, Frances Yllana will discuss the opportunities for agency leaders to invite DesignOps into the agency space—either as essential functions or a defined discipline and leadership role. Once DesignOps is accepted into this space, might it finally achieve its most elusive P: Parity.


    Frances Yllana is a branding, experience and community strategist, designer, teacher, speaker and consultant for businesses and non-profits. Since 2001, she has practiced and led a wide range of projects and teams including brand identity, art direction, social campaigns, video, animation and user experience — as well as employee experience and design operations. She is the first Design Ops Lead at Coforma, Secretary of the AIGA National Board of Directors, former host of AIGA’s DesignOps Ed webinar series, and also a Learning Labs professor for DesignOps Assembly.
