Who is This For?
Whether to brush up on the personas we serve, to ensure brand compliance, or to download logo or font assets, Lunchbox was built to assist anyone at Frontline Education, regardless of role, in their day-to-day efforts. That said, the system will be used most frequently by designers, developers, and product managers that are actively planning, designing, or building the Insights Platform.

What’s With the Name?
When we set out to name Frontline Education’s design system, we wanted a fun, memorable name that effectively represented the industry we serve and communicated the design system’s purpose: to provide a collection of tools and guidelines that help serve a higher goal.
After many name proposals and much discussion, we landed on “Lunchbox”.
For us, the name Lunchbox was packed with nostalgia. We reminisced about the feelings of jubilation we felt when we were finally able to open our lunchboxes to see what goodies were in store; that ham sandwich with mustard and an extra slice of cheese (thanks Mom!), a pack of green Gushers, and CapriSun. Your lunchbox was the home of all the pieces, or components, that made up that scrumptious midday meal.
