Project Overview
The Challenge: Elevate Centime's product design to achieve a contemporary aesthetic, consistent user experience, and increased efficiency, in order to enhance user satisfaction and business outcomes.
The Solution: Development of a comprehensive design system to streamline design processes, ensure brand consistency, and provide a scalable foundation for growth.
Problem Statement
Centime's existing design lacked cohesiveness and alignment with modern trends, impacting user experience and development efficiency. Key issues included:

Inconsistent Visuals: Varied UI elements across platforms led to a disjointed experience.
Outdated Aesthetic: The design didn't meet contemporary user expectations.
Inefficient Workflows: The lack of a centralized system created redundancies for designers and developers.
Brand Dilution: A weak design language negatively impacted brand perception.
My Role
Core Team Member: As part of a 3-member team, I was instrumental in developing Centime's comprehensive design system.
Visual Foundation: Actively explored design trends and helped define the system's color palette, typography, and spacing.

Component Creation: I was instrumental in the hands-on creation of the robust Figma component library. This involved designing and building reusable UI elements like buttons, forms, navigation, and data display components, ensuring consistency and scalability.
Accessibility Advocate: Ensured the design system met accessibility standards, supporting an inclusive user experience.
Design Principles
The design system was guided by the following principles:
• Contemporary & User-Centric
• Workflow Efficiency
• Collaboration-Focused
• Data-Driven
• Brand Alignment
• Accessibility
• Scalability
Key Components
Colors: A 100+ color palette meticulously aligned with the brand and featuring a logical naming system.
Typography: Roboto sans-serif for a modern and versatile look.
Design Tokens: To streamline the design-to-development handoff.
Iconography: A well-defined icon library that aligns with the overall design language and ensures visual clarity.
Comprehensive Components: Robust library including
• Buttons
• Input fields
• Navigation elements (Tabs, Tags, Header, Breadcrumbs)
• Popups, Modals, and Notifications
• Data Display (Tables, Timeline, Messages)
• Forms (Toggle, Checkbox, Dropdown, List)

• Miscellaneous (Tooltip, Settings)
Efficiency Gains: Reduced design time and faster feature releases.
Improved Maintainability: Centralized assets reduced ongoing maintenance costs.
Enhanced Consistency: Strengthened brand identity and a seamless user experience.
Accessibility Compliance: Expanded user base and potential increased revenue.
