Trellis provides an enteprise software platform that helps manufacturers of cannabis products maximize their operational efficiency while maintaning compliance. Trellis' product team is distributed across two countries and 3 times zones. Over time, this structure created numerous inconsistencies in the product with different developers implementing components in slightly different ways.
Further, Trellis did not put an equal emphasis visual aesthetics and consistency. This decreased its percieved value, which was problematic because it was priced above competitors. The solution was to tackle these problems head on by building out a design system to unify the platform and elevate its visual appeal to match its functional superiority.
