Three months ago, we published the first alpha version of Airbus Design System. ✈️
We are very proud to announce the v1.0.0-Beta 🥳
During one year and a half we built a product and a service with a full-time dedicated team. With this team model we were able to produce much faster using high quality standards. It gave us a global view around all different kinds of projects in Airbus to identify universal needs regarding the design of applications. It also gave us the opportunity to build a vision of how the product and the service should be. It was the best way to start, no doubts.
Since the beginning of the crisis we saw an increase in the demand regarding the use of the Design System. Unfortunately, we are facing budget issues and we can’t continue our activity in the same way. We have to focus on projects that are securing cash in the short term. We are doing our part.
It doesn’t mean that it’s the end of the Design System, it’s the beginning of a new period for us, we will be distributed among projects that have enough resources to continue and we will use the platform we built.
We are turning a page, we are not closing the book. 📕
Activities that will continue
While we'll have to delay the development of the new capabilities we planned for 2020 (DataViz, Motion Guidelines, theme & brand switcher, more components...), we will continue to:
