Design systems have become an essential tool for creating consistent and efficient user experiences. Yet according to the 2021 Design Systems Survey, only 40% are successful. One reason? Strict guidelines can sometimes make designers feel restricted and overwhelmed, hinder their creativity, and limit their productivity–causing the entire system to implode.

That’s where the quirky side of design systems comes in. By leveraging seemingly rigid features, functionality, and processes, designers can find the right balance between consistency, flexibility¬, efficiency, creativity, and longevity.
