Scaling design systems for the people
As part of a widespread federal efforts to improve public’s experience of government digital services, 18F needed a secure and compliant platform that helps federal agencies deliver services the public deserves in a faster and user-centered way.
Expanding the design systems capabilities to include an interactive web builder allowed users to easily create compelling layouts that can be previewed within minutes, which was unheard of in the government world, until now.
After a year of the beta run, we had hundreds of federal agencies using cloud.gov to build products and services with rich content and intricate data visualizations in record time. Over 100 million people were exposed to those services created every day by notable partner agencies, including Treasury, Education, Justice, Defense, NASA, and Homeland Security.
