Benefits of a design system

  • Branding

    Branding

    By having an organised and structured set of branding tools you create a cohesive brand experience across your entire organisation.

  • Interface design

    Interface design

    The way your website or app presents itself greatly impacts its success. A design system refines your interface while providing your designers and developers with design assets and code snippets along with clear usage guidelines.

  • Accessibility design

    Accessibility design

    More than 1 billion people in the world have some form of disability. Are you overlooking people with colour blindness or poor eyesight? Including accessibility guidelines in your design system can give this portion of the population better access to your website or app.

  • Interaction design

    Interaction design

    Interaction provides animated visual feedback to your users so they never feel stuck or lost. These animation rules, assets and code live in your design system so your brand's motion is never neglected.

  • Front-end code resource

    Front-end code resource

    Front-end code for all assets are available in your design system. This ensures consistency in code formatting and prevents developers from having to redo work.

  • Guidelines for use

    Guidelines for use

    Usage guidelines are instructions on how to communicate your brand. These can include guidelines on rolling out your brand identity, interface and animation design and even guidelines on formatting code.

  • Rapid prototyping

    Rapid prototyping

Do you really need a design system?

Ask yourself these questions.

  • Do you have a large software platform that customers interact with daily?
  • Do you find that design and development changes are slow?
  • Are people rejecting new ideas because it would take too long to prototype?
  • Are you tired of your inconsistent visual experiences?
  • Are people dissatisfied with your software and finding it hard to use?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you may want to consider starting a design system for your company.
