Component Libraries: Where to start?

I work for a creative agency (growth and transformation agency) primarily focused on building brands for businesses. One aspect of our work is handing off a brand. This is easy and common practice for us. Frontify makes everything easier and better!


The hard part of our work is building better Ui/Ux documentation. I’d like to start leveraging our developers (and digital designers) to better understand how they can make use of Frontify’s integrations instead of duplicating their code in a separate style guide. 


Are there any best practices on where to start? How to address this with a team? We often create brands and websites, but we have just now begun building repositories and full Ui documentation. The order of operations is almost always dictated by a creative and not the developer. How can we begin a project with the process leaning into what a developer finds most useful for their end output?

Hey Shawheen, That’s a super interesting question indeed! We’re currently asking our internal Frontify teams to see who we can connect you with and share best practice examples. We’ll contact you shortly via mail.

For everyone interested in the field of UI/UX documentation, I’d like to share that BOSCH just won a Red Dot Design Award in the category “Brands & Communication Design” for excellent design across all digital touchpoints.  :tada: You can find a sneak peek into their Frontify Design System in the article here
