Creating A Design System: First Design System Patterns

Once all the building blocks of the system are built, tested, implemented, and accepted by product designers and developers, you can start building up the patterns.

This is the task that will never end. Patterns should always either reflect the truth about the product, or reflect the aspirational state of the product in the near future. Products constantly evolve and so should patterns in the design system. Don’t aim at finalizing all the patterns in a single sprint or even a series of sprints. Take them one by one and make sure they are implemented by product teams so you can gradually correct all the inconsistencies and increase the speed of product development.
