A set of working principles agreed between the teams using the Design System and the core Nucleus team.
As a design/UX community, we understand the context and decisions made before. We work collaboratively to evolve these as the context and needs change over time.
We recognise that working in person adds a layer of shared understanding and brings down silos. It helps us all work in similar ways so that we build empathy, visibility, and cross-learning.
We recognise that involving each other from the beginning on a piece of work prevents wasting time, leads to better outcomes, and delivers value to our customers faster.
Everything we create has a proven added value. We aim to better our customers' experience with every release.
We understand the outcome of the changes we make, so we can repeat successes and avoid mistakes in the future.
We aim to make everything understandable, and open to the community.
Everything we create is usable by anyone and leaves no one behind.
Everything we do is linked to a user's need – a problem that has been identified and verified.
When possible, we meet for fun events such as hackathons, meetups, conferences or just a night out to get to know each other better.
