Design Systems Hour Nº 5 :: FINN

Fabric: the cloth that binds us all together, the foundation of everything we build upon, or maybe it's just a catchy name that fits nicely alongside FINN? You decide.

For FINN, Fabric is an effort to fine-tune their design system, a spring cleaning of sorts, with the main areas of focus being:

  • Improving the quality of visual design in FINN
  • Creating clearer, more structured design guidelines and documentation
  • Gathering it all in one place
  • Refining our components libraries
  • Controlling what should and shouldn't be added to the design system
  • Creating a more collaborative environment for designers and developers

You can explore Fabric on your own at
