Contribute to Nucleus

Our design system is a living organism, one that reflects and evolves with our collective learning.


The Nucleus team is responsible for driving the growth and adoption of the design system. We have a roadmap and priorities to meet, one of these priorities is to be there to support you in adopting Nucleus.

What to expect?#

Everyone plays a part in creating a coherent, consistent and engaging customer experience.

To help do this, we want to ensure we provide everyone with helpful and relevant resources. If you would like to contribute to Nucleus please reach out to one of our team.

Whether it's using the resources and documentation provided by Nucleus or contributing to them, it's your turn now.

Who can contribute?#

Everyone. Whether you are a designer, a software engineer, a tester, a solutions architect, a product owner, or a director: everyone is invited to advance Nucleus.

Insights on existing Nucleus assets#

For any feedback related to our Nucleus components and related documentation, we're using Github. This helps us provide a transparent track of all contributions and potential issues.

  1. You can view our requests status.
  2. You can create bug reports, add a new change request (RFC), as well as react or comment on existing feedback.
  3. We've prepared a template to structure incoming feedback, gather relevant insights, and help us respond accordingly.
  4. If and once an issue is picked up, we'll ask to meet you to swap ideas and listen to your insights or make use of weekly design critique sessions.

Suggestions for new Nucleus assets#

We're working hard to grow Nucleus without sacrificing quality.

  1. You can track and add suggestions for new assets in Github by checking our requests status.
  2. Feel free to explore the styles and assets provided to suggest new components.
  3. Please make sure to submit your experiments and learning. It helps us to track potential variations and roll out stable additions to all teams via Nucleus.

  • We help to host and facilitate sessions and workshops focused on our current tasks as we go along. If you'd like us to help organise or be involved in something you're doing, do let us know.
  • Just like other product teams, we're participating in weekly and monthly cross-team ceremonies.
