Figma checklists

About this project

Half torus

The primary purpose of this site is to provide you with a set of benchmarks to elevate the design and quality of your Figma components.

Hello, I'm Javier Cuello, a product designer specialising in design systems. Through my experience working in teams, I've realised that everyone's expectations of what constitutes a good component can vary significantly. To help align our visions and provide reminders during the design and testing process, I began creating lists.

However, these benchmarks often remain buried inside documentation, sometimes difficult to access. That's why I decided to create this website as a shared resource, even though it may be opinionated at times. Still, I hope it can inspire designers who want to create their own requirements by adapting the content.

This is particularly important if you are working as a solo designer or in small teams, as larger organisations may have other processes and workflows that affect how components are designed, published, and approved. In any case, I hope it helps you get a head start on improving how you craft components and raise your own standards.

About the content

The content is divided into two sections: 'Design', featuring items that can aid in crafting a component; and 'Testing', containing considerations for testing your component before final publication. I'll likely continue updating and adding items, images, and descriptions over timeā€”just bear in mind this is a (very) side project built from scratch by one person.

Behind the scenes

Here are some resources I used in designing and implementing this website. I don't have any affiliation with any of them, and these are just for you to explore:

  • Design: Figma, of course
  • Content: Authored by me based on personal experience
  • CMS: Kirby
  • Images: Wannathis
  • Analytics: Fathom
