Building a Design System
IQVIA’s recent initiative to bring its vast spectrum of products from several acquisitions into a consistent and robust design, style and brand is no small task. A design system was the first step down that road.
Documentation & Wireframes
As our team came across specific needs for each product, the design system would grow. Standard components were a given, but we were looking for the patterns that made Apollo special.
Where we finished with pagination regarding one or two products, we’d iterate yet again to meet the needs for the next four.
As we learned about our products and users, we were able to get into the detail and specificity of our design system.
Pagination was a tricky little gem, only revealing how sophisticated this component could be as we discovered product-specific needs in contrast to design system needs.
Ship then iterate
Once we had a verified foundation, we could refine our work. We used this time to challenge our decisions and on more occasion than not, start over. Published here are drafts of that process.
