What we're working on

The design system team works in the open. This page shows what we’re doing and why we think it’s important.

Now

Currently we’re working on:

Accessibility

We’re:

  • getting our components to a 100% pass rate against our accessibility testing framework (currently 94%)
  • getting the framework ready for user journey testing with product teams

Why is it important?

At Co-op we’re committed to creating products and services for everyone.

For more information read our digital accessibiltiy policy.

Developing processes

We’re:

  • researching how people use the design system and finding solutions to common pain points (for example keeping our design libraries and front-end code in sync)
  • looking at how we make contributing to the design system and keeping up to date as simple as possible

Why is it important?

Our design system relies on the community at Co-op using it and trusting it. It needs to be simple to use and easy to work with. Before we go further we need the foundations in place to be able to scale.

Next

Next we plan to work on:

  • documentation and the audiences it needs to serve
  • the backlog of changes and suggestions we’ve built up

Ongoing

We run regular meet-ups and monitor the health of our design system with data and user research.

Feedback or new proposals might not be acted on immediately but it will go into our backlog to be prioritised.

Getting input from across Co-op is important so please contribute.

Updates

Updates to the design system are tracked on our updates page.
