A company as large as Schubert needs to convey a unified and consistent brand image to the outside world. Since a multitude of digital interfaces had been developed by various agencies and service providers, a digital design system needed to be created that would uniformly define the design. To this end, designers from the Ruess Group took the lead in defining the user experience style guide, including coordination with the individual disciplines, to ensure that all requirements and needs were met.

- Continuous optimisation and expansion
Why a UX Design Guide is necessary
The requirements for the design style guide vary depending on the interface: For the corporate website, it has to include design elements, colour palettes, typography and layouts to ensure a consistent brand presentation. For data-driven dashboards, clear instructions need to be defined for the presentation of data and visual elements. Finally, the design system also has to include specific guidelines for the packaging machine user interfaces to ensure they are easy and intuitive to use.
With a digital UI style guide, Schubert ensures that all digital touchpoints are designed consistently and attractively while presenting the brand in the best possible way. This leads to higher brand awareness and loyalty, as well as improved usability on all digital platforms.
Definition of colours & fonts
Different colour systems were developed depending on the use (group website, sustainability website, machine interfaces, etc.). There are three font families that can be used, depending on the application: Helvetica Neue Condensed and Helvetica Neue as the main font, the Arial Narrow and Arial system fonts for e-mails, and Liberation Narrow and Liberation for the Linux-based environment of the machine interfaces.Verschiedene Farbsysteme je nach Einsatz (Group Website, Nachhaltigkeits-Website, Maschinen-Interfaces ...) wurden entwickelt. Für die Schriften gibt es je nach Einsatz auch drei Schriftfamilien, die genutzt werden können: Helvetica Neue Condensed und Helvetica Neue als Hauptschrift, für E-Mails die Systemschrift Arial Narrow und Arial sowie für die linuxbasierte Umgebung der Maschinen-Interfaces die Liberation Narrow und Liberation.
Definition of buttons & links
Definition of numerous interactive elements for light and dark mode: text input, dropdowns, checkboxes, radio buttons, toggles, pagination, comboboxes, listboxes, treeviews, context menus, dialogue messages, pop-ups, etc.
