CONSISTANCY AND UNITY

Brand guidelines with rules of layout and fonts are commonly used. Going a step further we have design systems which govern the laws of your brand’s universe.

Making a design system involves creating a collection of repeatable components and instructions for use which facilitate scaling. All this cements your brand and makes everything you put out, even if designed by huge teams, look like it was done by the same person.

“Design systems provide a convenient, centralized, and evolving map of a brand’s known product territories with directional pointers to help you explore new regions.” –Chris Messina, tech evangelist and former Developer Experience Lead at Uber
