After a careful audit of the painpoints and user interviews, we referred to the Atomic Design Principles
by Brad Frost, the Design System Checklist,
and some of the more established design system such as IBM's Carbon
and Uber's Base
to reconfigure our design system.
During the process, we discovered that the painpoints primarily rooted from the incoherent design guideline of the 'stars' element – the fundamental building blocks of the interface.
As a result, we aimed to re-establish the design system by taking the system apart and scrutinizing it from the bottom-up, starting with some of the more frequently used components throughout the interface.
