Why design systems fail and how to make them work

almost 5 years ago from , UX engineer


I wrote a blog post about a design system that failed, because they don't always work :) I thought I could learn a lot from writing about that. I also hope that other designers would be interested to read about this, and could share their experience with design systems (positive or negative). It's my first article in English on Medium, so please bear with me.

    "Design for people. The biggest mistake I made is thinking that I could improve the connection between designers and developers by putting a system between them."

    Thanks for sharing your lessons learned. I'm creating a new design system and I'll need to keep this in mind.
