Cosmos empowers teams to think bigger

Above all, the Cosmos design system aims to empower designers and developers to advocate for a higher level of UX design maturity in their organizations. Design maturity is a sequence of developmental stages that organizations pass through, characterized by the level of design thinking — or iterative process of generating solutions through exploring user needs and challenging assumptions.

When designers use a system like Cosmos for day-to-day design work, they have more opportunities to:

  • Focus on creating the right experiences for their audience
  • Conduct experiments and gather metrics about how their design is performing
  • Invest in cross-functional relationships with engineers and other stakeholders
  • Save time on creating surface-level designs and updates
