    This is one great example of a modern design process. In few years time engineering and design won't be two different tools / languages (Sketch, Swift/Obj-C and Java), but rather just one shared component library being adopted to different platforms with layout rules, contraints, colors, typography and states as the base of it. I'm curious, how did you as as designer feel about working within these very rigorous design constraints? And when presented to new designers what was their take on it? As a designer, I felt after working with Android and Google Material Design that given the very rigorous guidelines that it almost became "non-design" and what I was just basically doing was referencing elements and components in the Guidelines to the engineers.
