Another couple of things are built into the icon system, super important to everyone in the team: - accessible by default (when using polaris-react's Icon component) - performance: both automated and manual SVG optimizations guarantee the smallest footprint possible

To achieve our goals, we worked as a diverse team of developers, designers, content strategists and UX researchers. This helped us keep our biases in check and build a set of tools and processes that feel more inclusive and approachable to all as a result 💜

- publishing process, automation and versioning (tests, SemVer, SVG optimization, PDF generation...) - consumer docs: React, vanilla JS, iOS, Android, Sketch... - findability: we built an app listing all icons with metadata, allows to modify metadata and submit new icons

- governance / contribution process (centralized or federated, Abstract vs GitHub as the source of truth) - metadata: description, keywords, authors... <- often overlooked by design orgs! So important for traceability and maintainability

[paraphrase]: “Don’t let developers take over design systems. If you do, you end up with what designers worry about when they fear design systems.” — on why design systems should be evenly balanced and shared by designers and developers. 👏🏼
