Building a design system alongside a project has a lot of benefits.
It’s a good way to get your hands on the brand you are working with
and master the apps you are using, but also a great way to envision
all the possible outcomes of the visuals one will have to produce in
the process of the project or the brand. Designing a system can also
be a proving ground to experiment around a brand and analyse how can it speak.
Design systems are also a good way to bridge with the development teams; speaking of the same elements and features of a product can facilitate collaboration between designers and developers.
