A design system is a collection of guidelines and reusable components that maintain consistency across the enterprise. As a design system agency, DOOR3 designs and creates these components.
Why use design system consultants?
Design system consultants build a library of predefined, reusable components and patterns connected to a single source of truth that ensures brand consistency across multiple projects.
A design system consultancy designs and develops new interfaces with premade modules that greatly improve efficiency while reducing the amount of documentation required.
A design system is a living artifact. As the needs of your business evolve, the system scales with them. An experienced design system consultancy builds a comprehensive library that continues to give far past its inception date.
What’s developed with a design system consultancy?
We work with you from the ground up. Considering your brand identity, current and future needs, DOOR3 as your design system agency creates a set of guidelines and documentation that govern everything in the system. A grid system, color palette, and typographic scale are some of the fundamental building blocks of a design system.
The component library forms the nuts and bolts of the design system — a set of reusable, modular building blocks that allows for rapid designing and iteration on digital products at large scale. Stateful components are created with use cases built in and ready for development.
Using the component library as the foundation, we scale up to define larger structures called patterns when acting as a design system consultant. Repeating modules are identified and created allowing for fast and consistent designs. Patterns can include navigation, form templates, data tables, and anything else that’s needed.

Building with DOOR3: A design system consultancy
DOOR3 design system consulting projects are generally broken into four sections, each just as important as the one to follow.
At the outset of our design system services, we work with you to understand the problems being faced by your organization. No two companies are alike, and we tailor the discovery process to suit the needs and goals of your project.
Definition of Scope
Once we understand your needs, our design system consultants create a roadmap for production. This includes a definitive list of components and patterns that make up the design system, any planned future enhancements, and a timetable for design and implementation.
Design and Iteration
With map in hand, we begin to create the foundations of a new design library. We work iteratively and collaboratively as your design system consultants, sharing our progress along the way to ensure that everything is being designed up to the standards and needs of your company.
Handoff and Support
Once our guidelines, components, and patterns are complete, we begin the next steps of our design system services, whether that means facilitating handoff to your team or passing the ball to our own DOOR3 developers. As your project grows and unfolds, we stay close to ensure seamless integration and help to nurture the evolution of your design system.
Our website was built and designed using our own in-house design system consultants, making it easy for us to quickly iterate and keep our design and development teams in sync.
