CORE, Design System Starter Kit

Start with a rock solid foundation and evolve from a simple system that work

As a coder and designer, I always try to optimize my workflow and to automate the repetitive and less enjoyable tasks in my work so that I can focus on innovative and creative experiences.

Even if a lot of Design Systems UI Kits are currently available, most of them contains a lot of predefined UI elements that don’t really match my own needs. What I was looking for is something that I can intuitively understand and easily scale and share with my team. This is why I started CORE.

Why Figma?

Like many designers, I started to work with Sketch which was the very first application made for user interface design. It made the process of designing interfaces much easier and with the Library feature, we could start to collaborate between designers. Combined with tools like Zeplin or InVision, we could easily collect feedback and transfer the final designs to the development team.

But the introduction of Figma made a huge difference. In short, it is free, made for collaboration and platform agnostic. You don’t need any other tools to share your designs or create a prototype. One tool, one place. Anyone can easily start to use it and without any account, which fitted with my idea of a universal framework :)

If you need more reasons to switch to Figma in your work, I also recommend these great articles :

CORE is always in development, so any feedback is very welcome!

I would like this starter kit to mainly act as a guide and helper. It should help you to kickstart your next web project as fast as possible.

Start using Core. Available at the Figma Community
