Australian Government Design System

The Australian Government Design System created to align 1000+ websites over 200+ organisations.

As the Lead User Experience Engineer I worked in a team to launch the Australian Government Design System to align 1000+ websites over 200+ organisations.

It was received as a world class example. It included accessibility guidance, rationales of design decisions and prominent contributors.

We created and supported our federated community on Discourse, GitHub and Slack that drove the future direction of the design system.

We continuously maintained, created and enhanced the 25+ components. The components met Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) level AA 2.1 and best practice HTML, React, JavaScript, jQuery, CSS and SASS.
