IBM Lotus One UI (later named ICS One UI) is a set of design guidelines, a developer’s guide, code samples, and a toolkit that help products in the IBM Lotus suite to maintain a consistent set of design patterns and visual elements.
As part of the IBM Lotus One UI team, I was responsible for developing and reviewing guidelines, as well as the design and some of the development of the One UI internal website.
In addition to the design guidelines, we also built two companion sites: Asset House and ArtSource. Asset House is where we posted design assets that could help designers easily get started on new projects. In addition to icons, we also posted mobile device shells, empty browser windows, as well as desktops and UI elements for different operating systems.
ArtSource is a self-service site for marketers and sellers where they can download product icons and screenshots without having to track down the designers of the products.
