Building a Design System

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.
