Design Systems
Coordination with developers is key

Big design system like this requires a lot of coordination, not only between designers, but also with developers. Each design component has its counterpart in code. It's important to understand how these components are implemented, what are the possibilities and limitations. Also you need a process to make sure design and code stay in sync over the long term.

From design perspective, it's important to find the right balance – the design system needs to ensure consistent look and feel of the product, but at the same time needs to leave some room for actual design innovation. Too strict design rules can stifle that.
