Grupo SM is a Spanish publishing house specialized in educational materials, with an extensive catalogue of more than 9000 titles sold in 80 countries.
We worked hand-in-hand with various departments in the company to help them develop a Design System that would allow them to standardize the design of dozens of their digital assets and serve as the foundation for creating new top-level user experiences.
A design system is a collection of design tools and methodologies that are used to reduce chaos and accelerate the design processes of any development team.
We were in charge of creating the parts of the system with the highest UI/UX load, such as the definition of the design language and the creation of the component library with examples of application.
We created a component and style library so that it could be easily used by any development team. By assembling the components and following the guidelines set by the design language, any web development team could create a layout quickly and correctly.
In order to understand how the design system works, it was necessary to create examples of different displays and layouts, so we got down to work and designed more than 40 different formats.
