Introduction

In order to optimise our designs and bring consistency across all products, we decided to create a design language system. This would ideally give anyone who uses it a comprehensive idea about our design philosophy and process.

What is Asphalt

The name comes from a saying that our driver partners use in Indonesia. “Salam satu aspal", which loosely translates to “The road unites us all”. Asphalt aims to unite developers, designers and all other functions across the org for the double cause of consistency and efficiency.

Asphalt also includes multiple libraries which designers can link to their projects, and access all the components within these libraries from Sketch directly. This makes integration of the design language and maintaining consistency across products a breeze for both designers and developers. Few examples of our libraries are Iconography library, Illustration library, and logo library.

Our libraries

Libraries collectively include all the UI and visual components used across all GO-JEK products. The designer can simply link any of the libraries to the Sketch file he/she is working on, and instantly access all the components within the library directly from Sketch. The libraries are constantly updated to feature the latest UI components across all platforms, so as to provide a centralised repository which features all the latest design elements.

Asphalt Android Library

The Asphalt android library consists of all the UI components used in android designs across all GO-JEK products. The designer can drag and drop elements directly from the library, once he/she links it to the Sketch file he/she is working on.

Asphalt iOS Library

The Asphalt iOS library consists of all the UI components used in iOS designs across all GO-JEK products. The designer can drag and drop elements directly from the library, once he/she links it to the Sketch file he/she is working on.

Iconography Library

The Iconography library is a repository of all the icons used throughout GO-JEK designs. Icons of all shapes, sizes and colors can be found here. The designer can simply pick an icon from this library and use it in their designs.

Illustration Library

The illustration library is a repository of all the illustrations used throughout GO-JEK designs. The designer can simply pick an illustration from this library and use it in their designs.

Logo Library

The logo library is a repository of all the logos used at GO-JEK. If needed, the designer can simply pick a logo from this library and use it in their designs.
