Creating a harmonious relationship between design and engineering teams will be a familiar challenge for any company building digital products. Ensuring workflows, methods, and standards are streamlined across product teams have grown even more crucial as technologies and platforms continue to evolve. Design Systems and Design Tokens have emerged as solutions to not only maintain, and even improve, efficiency but also ensure design consistency across product offerings.
