MetLife Design System Version 7.0  (April 2020)

MetLife’s Design System empowers our UX with consistency, efficiency and brand-fidelity. Our patterns and visual language lend cohesion and familiarity to MetLife user experiences across our platform.

MetLife’s UX Design System is built using Adobe Xd, which is the enterprise standard for designing all digital experiences.

Building Blocks of Design

Our design system enables you to build experiences that are comprised of Standards and UI Kits. UI Kits are collections of reusable components, which are used to design experiences and build prototypes.


Standards include the most basic patterns such as buttons and form fields.
