For Product Designers
Contributing and collaborating with the Backpack team is easy, just follow these simple steps.
You don’t need to do much more design work than you’re already doing.
Help us maintain the Figma library
Improve the way a current component is built in Figma.
Add feedback to a file. Your wisdom is invaluable.
Share or improve components
Add new components or improve an existing one. There’s a simple process for this (below)
Update the style, layout or interaction of an existing component.
Finally, you can create or revise our guidelines
Help us to build out documentation for our components.
If you’ve got something to add to Backpack, say hello in the #backpack-design-channel channel and we can talk through your idea. Useful tools to get started:
If a similar idea already exists:
Message the reporter on the ticket or reach out to them on Slack to discuss how you can work together.
If your suggestion is completely new:
Add a ticket describing your plan (screen grabs help!) and assign the ticket to yourself.
We’ll take a look at your proposal and plan its priority to understand how your plans fit into the bigger picture.
Whether you're building something new or updating something existing, collaborate with your peers. Add any work to Backpack Workshop Folder so everyone can see your progress. Ask if you need Editor permissions.
Sit back, relax and enjoy being a Design System hero.
Your work helps us build beautifully-consistent products more efficiently, keeping our travellers happy.
