I had so much fun working on the consistency guidelines for IBM Cloud's illustration earlier this year.
We did illustration auditing across the platform, stablished which of the 3 IBM illustration styles we were going to use and where, and finally created a set of guidelines and assets for more than 400+ designers at IBM Cloud to use.
I was specially responsible for the empty state illustrations, updating the current assets, adding them to our Sketch kit, coded components and creating the guidelines for new submissions, both in light and dark mode.
