Designing for Platform Consistency

Amplify UI Toolkit 2014 – 2015

Over the years, Amplify's web-based products diverged quite a bit in their functionality, appearance, and code implementation. To establish a unified design system, a small team began building a web UI toolkit on top of Bootstrap 3. Developer and designer Yuriy Vaskevich initiated the project, which included contributions from Sid Nallu, Jessica Graham, Ben Warfield, Danielle Primiceri, Rajan Ayakkad, Trade Loeffler, and me.

I used the Amplify UI toolkit heavily with Professional Learning Maps. Having a selection of components with markup and styling code ready to use accelerated development and let us focus on building the more unique parts of the interface.
