thanks for writing this Wen! I’m the only designer at a small start-up and am in the initial stages of developing our design system. It’s a lot of work and I’ve had difficulty knowing where to start and where I’m going. Our product is not very complex (We’re a news company. We use AI to write news articles) so my focus is on designing for efficiency in our design system. If you have any tips or resources on that I’d love to hear from you or read another one of your articles. Thank you!
