We, the people of media, often talk about how we want to — need to — regain trust. We tend to forget sometimes that responsibility is how you get there. It’s a major pit stop.

We’ve spent so many years designing for an emotional response. The time to design for responsibility is here. The idea is to build a design system for responsibility. The prediction is that it’s going to happen, one way or another.

The principles of building a design system aren’t new. The system is there to make sure best practices are in place so we don’t reinvent the wheel every time. It’s about having a robust system that incorporates usability principles, standards, a style guide, a pattern library, guidelines, components, usage, and so on. The application of the system doesn’t really matter as long as its philosophical components are in place.

What if we did this with media responsibility — publisher responsibility — as the operating system?
