The Benefits of a Design System

Design systems create a visual language that unifies teams and standards from design through to development. It's not only meant to be a collection of reusable components for web sites or apps, but it communicates a cohesive and shared knowledge that allows many teams to collaborate, build and communicate more easily.

Our Approach to Building a Design System

Our Approach to Building a Design System

Decide the best approach

We gather information about the current ecosystem and design standards to help determine where and how to start implementing a design system.

Organizing design and development standards

We take our research and determine where the most impact can be made with a design system by identifying shared experiences, patterns, components, branding guidelines, and other areas that are should be included in your design system.

Hounder helps to build a visual digital design system that is accessible by all users and provides audits to your current designs to account for any shortcomings with text legibility, color contrast, and more.
