Last year, Cheryl, Dana, Jon and I worked on a design system and component library<https://pinecone.platform.coop> for the Platform Co-op Development Kit. We called it Pinecone, drawing a connection between the principles of atomic design<https://atomicdesign.bradfrost.com/table-of-contents/> and the “twin pines” symbol<https://geo.coop/story/praise-pines> that has long been associated with the cooperative movement. We worked to make each Pinecone component progressively-enhanced (when possible) and to support assistive technology users through accessibility best practices.
We learned a great deal working on Pinecone and while the visual design is distinctively that of the Platform Co-op Development Kit, much of the underlying code has been repurposed in various in-house websites at the IDRC: the IDRC’s website<https://idrc.ocadu.ca>, the forthcoming Community-led co-design kit<https://co-design.netlify.app>, and others.
