Design system based on external library

Hello community :slightly_smiling_face:

I am in charge of building the design system for my company. We decided with the tech team to choose the UI library Antd and I wanted to know if it makes sense to take components from this lib to create my own design system?

Thank you very much

The moment you & your team start to use the Antd library it essentially does become your own design system - you will be customizing it to fit the needs of your company (ie branding, colours, etc). The core will be based off of that library, but it is your system now if that makes sense. Another viewpoint, you would be promoting your system to other dev and designers in your community as your documentation, not the Antd website.

Best of luck!
