Introduction

How do I put this.. Coherently

Coherent is a coworking space management platform that handles everything from billing and invoicing, to bookings and lead management via CRM and access control

I joined Coherent as employee #1 back in 2016 as a business development manager. As our team grew and requirements changed, my role shifted into project management, then product management, and then eventually into product design

I’ve been directly involved with every piece of work we’ve ever released, and now day-to-day research, scope, design, project manage and test every new feature we build

Covering so many areas of the product and the business, I’ve got a unique insight into how everything works together; how requirements in one area might drive development in another, or how decisions made by one team can impact other teams.

Design system

Hotdesk

To ensure design consistency and improve developer handoff, I developed and introduced Hotdesk - the design system behind Coherent.

Something about documentation too

Fundamentals

Hotdesk includes design tokens for commonly used variables like color, spacing, corner-radius, effects and more

Maintenance

By using primitives, aliases and tokens, we're able to make discreet changes without impacting all of our components

Documentation

Tokens and components include guidelines on how to use them and how to maintain them going forward
