Cornetto Design Language

We've been working on a design language for our products over the last year, and you may have noticed it slowly dripping it into the tools you use every day.

By having a strong and consistent design language, it makes designing quicker (as many decisions are already made), it makes coding simpler (as we have made common design elements into reusable components), but most importantly, it makes using our products less jarring and confusing, and improves user confidence when presented with new functionality.

We call our design language Cornetto, because, well we like ice creams.

In Jellyfish, we gave our web platform a good strong smattering of Cornetto. Success, Warning & Error dialogs are more consistent & user-friendly, as are modals, data tables, form inputs and buttons.

We're not at the end of our journey for Cornetto, but we're excited about where the platform's design language is heading. And we've got a couple of big surprises in store soon as well - watch this space.

The Cocktail

This is a bit of a crazy one, the Jellyfish. It's a visual treat, but it's not for the faint hearted - packing sambuca, vodka, and blue curacao liqueur.

  1. You start with a highball glass, and fill it with ice. Add the vodka.
  2. Next, slowly add the blue curacao over the back of a spoon, so as to not mix with the vodka.
  3. Carefully repeat this method with sambuca, and finally, with some double cream (oat cream for dairy-free)
  4. Stir slowly and delicately to achieve this drinks' namesake effect

We'll be practising this one later this week - the jury is still out on whether it's as palatable as it looks!
