    Karri,

    Thanks for opening up the figurative floor for questions!

    When both a design system and development is happening at the same time, it's hard to balance between the two. In a situation where UI elements are being developed for the first time, there may not be an existing library off of which to base a design system. However, using a design system early in development seems like it could be especially helpful. At an early stage in a design system's life, does it pay to do intensive planning? Otherwise, is it better to develop and evolve the design system in concert with that process? Thanks,

    Stephen
