There is quite a hype train around the design systems lately. Dozens of articles were written already and many big name companies (and countries) had published their sexy design systems online. Some even argue this bunch of documentation and components will replace our jobs.
While design systems have proved they can help development teams achieving the product consistency dreamed by many of us, I am still not sure how well adopted these systems are, especially in small to mid size companies.
From what I see so far, the design systems are also still quite a wild west - not many best practices are really established. Only few common patterns we can observe.
We had prepared a Design system and style guides survey to try to make sense of this all. If you have couple spare minutes, I’ll be glad if you share me your experiences:
I'll be sharing the findings with you all here once we have enough answers.
