  • Posted to Material Design: How do you align your icons with text on a 4px baseline grid., in reply to Rami James , Apr 09, 2018

    Hehe sadly yes. Working on a design system, we have to be able to explain tot 50 designers why, when placing text on a baseline, icons seem off. Which would be fine, if I can rationalize the decision to use such a grid.

    That only works if your x-height is exactly the same as your baseline. Looking at Roboto that is not the case. I've taken the same image and capitalized that first letter. It still feels (is) off. This is the case if you look at all Material design files.

    I work at one of the major banks in the Netherlands. We have around 45 active designers, excluding copywriters. As one of the lead designers, I hold weekly feedback sessions to talk about design and or proces with the designers in my 'cluster' (8 designers). We have a monthly meet-up with all designers, including copywriters to talk about vision, new stuff, anything design related or for instance legislation (PSD2, GDPR are current hot topics).

    As your team grows monthly probably won't cut it anymore for design feedback, too many opinions. My advice would be, don't count on everyone gathering information for this monthly meeting. We tried trello, e-mail, slack to get subjects or topics. In the end we have 1 person making an agenda and gathering topics that might be interesting for the monthly.

    Good luck

    I'm actually running into problems that I can't click through symbols.
