Frequently Asked Questions

Who created the Liquid Design System?

The Liquid Design System is provided by the User Experience Strategy & Design team, part of the Chief Digital Organization at Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.

Who is the Liquid Design System for?

The Liquid Design System is for everyone who creates digital products at and for Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, or its subsidiaries. Designers, developers, and artists find their assets as well project managers, team leads or everyone else with curiosity in mind on how to build great digital experiences.

Can I use the Design Kit with another software?

We strongly believe that synergies can be created with the highest effect when everyone pulls together. Sketch and Figma are the state of the art tools when it’s about interface design, so we encourage everyone to use them as well.

Not only do we provide user interface assets within Sketch, also all of our illustrations are integrated in the Design Kit.

Why does the Liquid Design System exist?

At a large company such as ours, it can be very difficult to bring together all the different initiatives that are happening around the globe. This can become a challenge for designers and people who create digital products, as well as for their users.

Our guidelines provide support for creators and help establishing a unified and validated look and feel throughout the software ecosystem at Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.
