Design systems bring order and consistency to products and services. They help to protect the brand, elevate the user experience, and increase the speed and efficiency of how we push products and services.

They are a source of truth and a system of record for our decisions as a company. They hold us to high standards, keep teams on the same page, and help to onboard new team members. They document the why, when, where, and how.

The importance of a design system

Efficiency and speed

Design systems allow us to work faster and more efficiently. They streamline the process — decreasing the amount of time it takes to design, build, and ship new websites, products, and features across the brand touch points. Ultimately saving the business time and money.

Creating stronger brands

Design systems help weave brand identity throughout a product in a consistent and maintainable way. Brands plays a crucial role in design systems. By thinking and designing the brand holistically across products opposed to viewing individual solutions we could propose the products and services as add-ons to the companies overall brand value proposition.

Speaking the same language

Design systems help our teams communicate more clearly by establishing naming conventions and consistency across the products and services.

Consistency and user experience

Design systems help us design and build on-brand offline and online. Rather than working with a variety of styles and slightly differing approaches, teams are able to follow guidelines and stay consistent fostering trust in users in turn increasing conversion and retention.

Organisational

Access to design elements such as logos, Icons, Typography in a master library for internal & external use such as vendors and third-parties who have interests with the company.

Source of truth

Design systems and documentation are a source of truth for the whole team. A well designed, implemented, and maintained design system sets high standards for your product and your processes. Everyone becomes accountable for upholding these standards.

Design systems bring structure, accountability, and order. You need to find a way to create — and effectively and openly communicate — common, shared design guidelines, so everyone works in the same direction with the company as well as third parties.

A successful design system liberates your team from reinventing the wheel. It allows you to focus on what really matters: learning and improving the marketing of products to meet user and business objectives.

The Company Design System Reality

They’re time-consuming to build and establish.

But once in place can save time, energy and increase communication accuracy.

They take up a lot of development resources.

Ultimately use resource to save resource for all interactions with the brand.

They need to be maintained.

Having a single source to maintain, this will then be easily rolled out across all touch points of the company.

Third party design teams can see them as a threat to their creativity.

Third party teams should benefit from accurate work and less iteration time and increase client satisfaction.

They require stakeholder support to succeed.

Stakeholders change and diverse as well as their KPI's for the business trajectories, design systems keep everyone updated.
