    Is not that you are a bad person Anthony. It is that you just, people who write these kinds of articles, do clickbait stuff. My boss or my employee will find it on google after a 5 minutes search. He will think this is a breaking problem-solving for his designer or the design team and will make a better product if we follow along. He will share with me, the designer. Or with us, the team. And then tell us to do the same. "Follow the articles boys they have the research, we do not have to do it."

    It literally looks and feels like Stripe little cousin.

    I believe that's more about those who implement the design.

    Exactly. I am approaching the Atomic Design method as we speak and defining components and variables with an engineer.

    But I am confronted with the same issues as the GE's Prefix Design System in the long run: https://medium.com/ge-design/ges-predix-design-system-8236d47b0891.

    We have multiple apps. And an atom has to match and work cross-app.

    You are the only one that understands my question as for now. May I ask if you have been in this role before (Design-Ops)? And if yes, what information you have gained from such position that could help others?

    The “transformation” happens when the styleguide cannot control anymore the entropy of the production. http://thibault.mahe.io/blog/escape-zombie-styleguides.html

    I am Figma user since the beta days, and an evangelist of it, but did not ask anything about software.

    Working in a huge company like mine, 1000+, where devs are scattered around the globe you need to set up a design language. And big companies like mine are not keen on switching their process, they just need to ship right now, preferably yesterday and they don't really care how. I am taking the responsibility of setting a design system that I can build and maintain with the others. (see Polaris, Carbon, Atlassian, Nachos - design systems)

    The comments in this thread are just the quick fix and they won't work long-term.

    I just wanted to hear personal opinion in delivering to devs, and what findings you found in this process.

    If the devs work faster with CSS variables in building up a design system rather than showing them a jpeg of how to space things.

    And eventually, evolve these CSS Variables into a Design System? Having defined a set of variables defined can keep the design consistent rather than doing it old school by pointing out "XYZ px"on visuals.

    Our small team switched to Figma from August. It's by one means or another accesible and practical for all sort of individuals in our organisation. We can make all sort of projects from wireframes, native applications, infographics, icons. No one griped yet. We find the rescale the best feature by now but also the hardest to master and the ability of sharing links on trello directly from figma.
