DESIGN

SYSTEMS

& BREAKING DOWN DESIGN FOR ENGINEERS

Sets of design rules, components and styles that can be adopted by other products within an organization or other companies within the industries.

DESIGN DECISIONS TURN INTO UI
ARTIFACTS THAT TURN INTO LIVING REUSABLE DESIGN COMPONENTS.
FROM THERE, AN ITERATIVE DESIGN LANGUAGE WILL DEVELOP & WILL
BE USED TO BRIDGE THE GAP FROM
DESIGN TO ENGINEERING.

 

 

   START DESIGNING SCREENS AND WHEN
   YOU HAVE A COUPLE SCREENS DONE, THE

   YOU SHOULD STOP AND CREATE A GLOBAL

   COMPONENT LIBRARY THAT YOU CAN PULL

   FROM AS YOU DESIGN NEW SCREENS.

 

MATERIAL.IO

PIVOTAL EXAMPLE

THIS IS HOW ENGINEERS WILL BUILD
SOFTWARE AND YOU SHOULD MIRROR THEIR PROCESS WITH IN YOUR DESIGN TOOL.

IT’S GOOD TO RE-USE AND NOT
CREATE 1-OFFS UI ELEMENTS.

THE

interaction
model

 

 

 

 

?

The interaction model is the best set of interactions,
patterns, rules and ui real-state to house and serve the ui
components that contain the information and content.

THE

VISUAL
LANGUAGE

 

 

 

 

1st 

Create an strong action color that
will be used for most of the click-able

elements and used for the color of
the primary buttons.

Also, create a secondary color for

secondary buttons, text and other
ui elements.

examples

2nd

Use the action color for things that
are
clickable. Good examples are, "X" and back buttons, text links and forms.

Use these rules within your
design as you make more screens
and ui components.

After you have a couple screens

designed and you're starting to re-use

elements, then stop and create re-usable symbols.

Use this symbol library as you continue

designing and if you create something new, then create a symbol. This makes changing ui elements super fast!

Name everything including colors.

Eg: Primary button, Slide left drawer,

sunny yellow. No need to name type,

just h1– h4 for headline size type and
p1–4 for paragraph size type

2nd

3rd

Select a set of grays and don't use just

a gray, add some color to it.

Create a type system. Reuse them

through your designs.

36 POINT - BOLD - H1

28 POINT - BOLD - H2

16 POINT - BOLD - H3

24 point - light -P1

16 point - light - P2

8 x 8 pixel

16 x 16 pixel

32 x 32 pixel

64 x 64 pixel

Use a spacing system.

Make sure your icons

are consistent. Don't mix styles,

fills or outline icons.

 

Pick either outline only or filled icons

Pick multi color or solid color

Pick consistent style, should like a family

Make sure it can scale for the system before you style 1 icon
