    +1 to everything that Tim said. And if a VP is paying close enough attention to the design system that they can spot something out of whack, why are you afraid of that? Wouldn't you rather have anyone (including a VP) catch that before it goes out?

      I think you've misunderstood -- I was referring to the case where higher ups ask clarifying questions, not pointing out that something is wrong.

      And if a VP is paying close enough attention to the design system that they can spot something out of whack, why are you afraid of that?

      Sweating those details, while it might seem like they truly care about design, is not something I want a VP doing. Trust your team, go back to doing VP things.

      Wouldn't you rather have anyone (including a VP) catch that before it goes out?

      Product teams I've worked on ship software, not Sketch files.
