Your Sketch library is not a design system(

    Good design should be consistent. Good design must not be arbitrary. Good design should be thought-out to the last detail.

    People are acting like something new is invented, while it's definitely not. Maybe some people are exploring these domains recently, but it doesn't mean they are new. I'm seeing everyday more and more articles about "design systems" and what they promote as a new concept is actually DESIGN 101. So Design Systems is nothing new. Even hundreds of years ago ancient architects employed the idea of consistency in the components they used. Look some cities, too.

    "Design Systems" is already a fundamental part of design. "User Experience" is already a fundamental part of design. Design must be human-centered, so it's ultimate goal is to create a satisfying user experience. Without planning and organising a consistent design (system), it's not possible to create a smooth user experience.

    We don't need shiny words. We need to understand the basic principles of design. We need to start being better designers by employing this principles, everyday.

    So everything you do in the process is naturally part of the design system, because that's what design is.
