JSTOR Releases Design System as Open Source
JSTOR’s platform team has publicly released Pharos, JSTOR’s new design system, as open source. The system serves as a guide for ITHAKA’s product teams to create cohesive, supportive, and beautiful experiences for JSTOR’s users.
We wrote a detailed account of the team’s journey in creating a design system from the ground up. Our hope is that by sharing Pharos, it will help others in the design and product development community learn from our experience. We also hope they will help us strengthen Pharos with their feedback and contributions.
