    The designer job is here to stay. Although design systems make a designer’s job much more efficient

    You said it yourself. Efficiency = less people are needed to achieve the same results.

    While in the past a 'UI Designer' was needed to make wireframes come to life and look good, today a UI designer without product thinking skills is not a very important asset inside a team that uses a design system. New opportunities were opened as well - Illustrators, 3d artists are in a higher demand, and i believe there are more jobs for most types of designers and thinkers.
