Discussion on: Design Systems (Part I: Foundations)

I am currently organising the different components and styling my company uses. I joined the team a little over a month ago and quickly realised it's very hard for new people to jump in and get going. The only way to figure out what type of components and styling has already been made and in what context is by jumping in the code and browsing the website.

I've got a design background and I just couldn't quite get how they got any work done without organising these things. So I prepared some stuff and showed them how efficient a design system could be and how much value it can add to our current work and future projects. This series is definitely helping my case as well as helping me set up the system for my organisation.
