What’s in Backpack

All our component and foundation guidelines, as well as content and accessibility guidelines live here.

Why design systems matter

It’s simple. A design system is a set of guidelines and reusable components and patterns that help design and develop a product at scale. Backpack empowers us to work efficiently as a team and ultimately give our travellers an excellent experience every time they visit our website or app.

Who Backpack's for

From our Product Designers to Engineers, Content Designers to Illustrators – Backpack is for the builders and creators of our product.
