How to convince your team to follow design guidelines?

9 days ago from , UI / UX Designer


We are working on a design system.

Our current product is not following any guidelines or rules; accessibility and different screen sizes are not considered . I have always followed the material guidelines as it's easy to implement and generally works pretty well.

I feel like some Designers tend to not like to follow rules because it limits their creativity.

How do you convince that it's not a bad thing to follow guidelines? I feel like we have to start somewhere and following something is better than nothing.. Cheers
