Design systems in XD

When designing digital products at scale, it becomes increasingly challenging and critical to remain consistent. Under the increased pressures of content velocity, organizations are searching for ways to move faster when designing and building customer experiences. 

A design system provides consistent, robust, and reusable design patterns that unite multi-disciplinary product teams (designers, developers, and stakeholders) around a common visual language. It reduces design debt, accelerates the design process, and bridges teams bringing products to life. 

With XD 19.0, creating and maintaining a design system is flexible, frictionless, and intuitive. You can use design systems to:

  • Create cloud documents that contain reusable colors, character styles, and components (formerly known as symbols),
  • Share them across teams for reuse in their own documents, and
  • Manage updates from a central system so that everyone uses the latest assets.

Using design systems can be incredibly handy if you are sharing design system assets with your team, or  reusing design elements from project to project.
