Creating a global design system for Honeywell’s portfolio of products
We teamed up with Honeywell to create a global design system for its growing portfolio of digital products.
An international corporation with multiple business units, Honeywell needed a well-documented and extensible system to ensure consistency across its organization while also improving the end-user experience.
Establishing the framework
Working closely with Honeywell’s product teams, we defined a global design language for all of Honeywell’s software, redesigning a number of “hero” applications from Honeywell’s major business groups.
Abstracting those designs and learnings, we determined the content needs and organization for a system that would speak to both product and marketing groups.
A complete design support system
Like any well-designed system, we created a set of modular layouts and controls that could easily be shared and leveraged across Honeywell’s business. Our design language contained everything from design tokens, such as colors and typography, to foundational UI components, while also providing templates for websites, emails, and marketing collateral.
The new design system allows Honeywell’s teams to quickly design and build everything from complex interfaces to robust communication materials, while also providing a common platform that can continue to evolve with the company.
