Union UI

To keep the design system consistent you need to make sure that it looks exactly as in the code. I’m working in Figma. We developed a design system in Storybook for the Union project and connected it to Union’s Figma UI library.

Some of the features of the UI library we created:

  1. Storybook Integration:
    • Integration with Storybook facilitates synchronization between design and development.
    • Design changes made in Figma are reflected instantly in the Storybook.
    • Developers can efficiently implement design updates, reducing discrepancies.
  2. Atomic Design Principles:
    • Colors, typography, and components are documented systematically.
    • Atomic design principles ensure consistency and scalability.
    • Design elements are organized into atoms, molecules, organisms, templates, and pages for easy reference.
  3. Responsive Components:
    • All components are designed to be responsive across mobile, tablet, and desktop devices.
    • Extensive testing ensures optimal user experience on different screen sizes.
    • Flexibility and adaptability are prioritized to accommodate diverse user needs.
  4. Usability and UX Focus:
    • Design decisions prioritize usability principles to enhance user experience.
    • Intuitive navigation and clear visual hierarchy guide users effectively.
    • Feedback mechanisms and interactive elements improve user engagement.
  5. Comprehensive Documentation:
    • Detailed documentation accompanies each component, including usage guidelines and best practices.
    • Developers and designers can easily reference documentation for implementation and design decisions.
    • Documentation ensures consistency and facilitates the onboarding of new team members.
  6. Design Tokens:
    • Colors, typography, spacing, and other design tokens are defined and documented.
    • Design tokens ensure consistency across the UI library and Union's digital platform.
    • Modifications to design tokens are reflected consistently throughout the design system.
  7. Accessibility Compliance:
    • Components are designed and tested to meet accessibility standards.
    • Considerations for screen readers, keyboard navigation, and color contrast are integrated into design decisions.
    • Accessibility features ensure inclusivity and compliance with industry regulations.
  8. Seamless Handoff to Developers:
    • Design assets are easily exportable from Figma for implementation.
    • Code snippets and guidelines accompany each component for developers' reference.
    • The handoff process is streamlined, reducing communication barriers between designers and developers.
