Roundtable discussion: Design systems - experiences from the trenches

Design systems are undoubtedly one of UI design's greatest innovations. The productivity gains could be huge, and so creating a design system could be life-changing for your team.
At Showmax, the design team recently embarked on an initiative to create a new design system in Figma. They’re now implementing a solution that helps teams successfully scale products by creating the UI designs quickly with reusable components that respect the design language and offer a consistent user experience. Similarly, Outreach started its new design system in 2021 and is now reaping the benefits across teams in CZ and US.
What is your experience with design systems? Where did you start, what challenges you faced, and how you spread the belief in the system across teams? Is UI consistency always desirable or is it important to diverge at times too? 
Come join us and let's find out!

How do roundtable discussions work?
- Every roundtable discussion includes 5 active participants and a moderator to run the discussion.
- Each participant will prepare a question about the chosen topic to discuss. Please come prepared with a question and be prepared to discuss the questions other participants ask.
- The roundtable discussion lasts a total of 40 minutes, including:
             o 5 MINUTES: A quick introduction from each participant about who you are and what you do.
             o 35 MINUTES: Interactive discussions about each question (7 minutes per question).
- Other conference attendees are welcome to quietly watch the roundtable discussion. There will always be about 15 chairs set up for an audience. We’ll also be live streaming the discussion for attendees who can’t attend in person

Don't worry if you run out of time! Feel free to continue talking with other participants after the official roundtable discussion ends.
