    Definitely, the Design System is a means to an end. I think you're right that large companies have a louder voice in the community and if small scrappy teams starts copying e.g. AirBnb's way of working it will definitely lead in overhead and longer time-to-market.

    A Design System won't matter too much if you're working for an agency or on a product that is being built by a small team, but Design Systems are key for products that are being built by large organisations. A large organisation will have multiple concurrent feature projects, with no Design System in place these features will introduce new Components and these Components will be engineered, as time goes by the front-end code will be a jumble of duplicate Components and feature development becomes slower and slower. Then one day some clever front-end engineer comes along and decides to refactor the front-end code base, this endeavour takes a full month and development grinds to a halt. This could've been prevented if the organisation had a Design System that was shared by Design and Engineering. Designers who work in large organisation should have a mindset were they consider the feature they work on and the product as a whole – the Design System should be a forcing mechanism to ensure that designers never forget that they're working on not only a feature, but also on a larger system.

    That logotype is well done, I see both a gallows trapdoor and a record player pick-up in that logotype – is that intentional?

    The way the illustration moves around when hovering over is really well done

    Have to admit that I haven't paid too much attention to Adobe XD, but the voice feature looks really interesting. It's possible to build this in e.g. Framer, but it would require a lot of yak-shaving. Good to see Adobe doing more than also-haves

    I second that. Seems like they so obsessed with becoming a one-stop shop that they forgot about what they're really good at: being the go-to tool for fast, screen-to-screen prototypes.

  • Posted to Just Launched: Framer X, the world’s most advanced tool for interactive design, Sep 18, 2018

    Congratulations from a happy Framer Studio user. I plan to learn React and transition to Framer X within the next year. I don't think any other company in the industry gets design tooling like you guys. Framer Studio has allowed me to do prototypes that it would be impossible to do in any other tool.

    I'm sure Framer X will be a great tool, especially in a React pipeline, bridging the gap between designers and engineers.
