Design Systems are the heart of every project, enabling teams to innovate and deliver quickly and consistently, building the backbone for effective collaboration across the entire organisation.
Why use a Design System?
A toolkit of universal and standardised guidelines and components optimise workflows and create a consistent user experience.
Ideate, build, test, ship and iterate features efficiently by automating the trivial parts of product development, so your teams can get creative where it really matters.
Engineers and designers have a shared language streamlining their collaboration and workflows, and facilitating collaboration.
DoctorLink: Setting up a Design System
DoctorLink partnered with YLD to help redesign the user interface and improve upon the UX framework of their cross-platform product. This eventually evolved into the creation of a Design System and the introduction of DesignOps resulting in a cultural shift in their organisation.
Why we work with Design Systems
A Design System consists of standards, guidelines and re-usable components that give every team the tools they need to design, build, grow and maintain digital products.
A Design System optimises your team’s operational processes by defining how they collaborate and feed into each other's work; systematising the approach to information distribution; and establishing clear rules of governance.
Setting up standards
We help you establish high-level principles that serve as the foundation of your Design System and provide direction from an early stage.
Building out assets
Reusable components reduce design-and-tech-debt and speed up production. By enabling teams to expand and improve componentized assets, the Design System frees up resources to do creative and innovative work, as well as creating more opportunities for collaboration.
