A design system is a living style guide that’s collaborative and code-connected. It’s not just a style guide where designers are the only contributors. It’s shared across the whole team, including designers, developers, product managers, etc. As a result, the design system should be cohesive, dynamic, reusable and maintainable both in design and code.
It starts with the styles and components in Figma, then move its way into the team library to finally become code components that exist in a place that’s easy to reference, contribute and version controlled, like a git repository.
