you’re more than welcome, I’m glad you liked it.
After reading your comment I was thinking that an alliance is always a good idea.
For a couple of reasons:
- designers working in different teams/BUs can struggle with the same issues from different angles. You could easily find out, for instance, that a specific UI pattern is used in the same way by different design teams, this could be a great starting point to have a consistent library to rely on it doesn’t matter which team you belong
- process-wise, you could define the main contact points that trigger the design tasks (eg customer issues, product enhancement, R&D) in this way together with the other team you could define a proper way to handle the requests based on the skillset of each team
In my experience, it was always a great idea to work together with the marketing and the corporate communication design teams. We were able to help each other to increase the consistency and to boost the process by figuring options/roles/responsibilities out since the early stages.
At the end of the day, the one who will benefit from this attempt will be the user. And if the user has benefited from it, the whole business will have a benefit too, am I right?
Good luck with it and let us know how it goes
