FAQ

A design system is a collection of reusable design elements–components and patterns–guided by principles, standards, and documentation that product teams use to create a consistent user experience across a range of digital products and experiences. Design systems are a source of truth for an entire product organization to guide the design and development of digital products.

Creating a design system is a multi-step process that involves design work and alignment across the organization. Before you begin, it is best to get buy-in from the entire team involved in product design and development: designers, developers, product managers, etc. Once you have buy-in to create a design system, you’ll want to establish values, principles, and rules that will govern the design system.

Implementing a design system requires all parties who will work with the design system to have a shared understanding of what the design system is and how to use it. Typically, a design system will include a set of design elements–colors, character styles, components, and more-along with comprehensive documentation to guide designers and developers on how to use the design system.
