In this section you’ll find everything you need to know about contributing to our design system and how you can help us.

How can I get in contact with the Design System team?

You can reach out to us on our Slack channel #help-designsystem or speak to the Design System team and we can support you.

How can I make a feature request?

Please use one of the workflows in the #help-designsystem channel to make a feature request, report a defect or request help for anything else.

How can I find out which components have already been built?

You can take a look at our Storybook instances:

Can I build a new component?

Yes. If the component has been approved by designers then you are more than welcome to contribute. Please speak to the Design System team about your requirements and we will help by guiding you.

Can I make a custom implementation for a component that already exists?

No. We suggest that you raise a feature request using our #help-designsystem Slack channel. Please, make sure you use the Propose Feature workflow to describe your needs.

Once submitted, we will discuss how they can be met by using (or extending) an existing component.

The image above shows where you can find the Propose feature workflow in our #help-designsystem Slack channel.
