Exercise 1: Assess an existing brand’s design system

Alleyoop is an innovative cosmetic company. Take a look at their website from the perspective of design systems.

Conduct a visual inventory audit. Collect visual examples (screenshots) of color, typography, spacing, buttons, design patterns, icons, photography, illustrations and any other visual elements you can find. Categorize and organize them.

Create a canvas/frame in Figma and start documenting your audit there. Make sure your audit includes the following:

  • Color
  • Typography
  • Icons
  • Logo
  • Illustrations/Image/photography
  • Buttons
  • Design patterns or components
