Editor’s Note: Weâve been closely working with Maya on this article, and weâre happy to see the final result now being published on 18F. We highly encourage more teams to share the lessons they learned when building design systems or pattern libraries, and weâre always happy to support them in writing, editing and shaping that article. This post is a re-post of Mayaâs final article.
