Creating an application-sized design system provided me with fundamental knowledge into building scalable systems from the ground up. It has proved crucial to my growth as a designer and has informed the skill I bring to any job.
Looking back on this project, I am able to think of my own work critically. If I were to simplify the system further from here, I would reduce similar type stylings and reconsider the note previews located on project tiles in the dashboard. I would also focus more on accessibility with the lighter greys in the system.
Establishing a base 4 value in the system was vital to maintaining consistency around the application. Taking base 4 further, I would derive all dimensional values in the application from it.
