Design systems are product development tools that come in different shapes and sizes depending on the product strategy they’re built to support.
Think about how your design system will align with your product roadmap and concretely define the top-level business problem you want to solve. This will facilitate every design decision you make during the process and also inform your definition of success.
Having a clear goal will also help you with adoption.
Establishing a common language across all roles in an organisation is the cornerstone to a good design system.
A design system shouldn’t be a policing tool. While it needs to ensure that your highest standards of quality and accessibility empower your designers, it also ought to create an environment where anyone can contribute easily to its continued development.
Documentation is a must-have for design systems of any scale. It allows everyone to make consistent decisions, fast and efficiently.
Building a design system isn’t enough. To provide even more efficiency to your users, you have to proactively integrate your design system into their workflows with tooling.
