Design system - Mobile AND Desktop, or one single system?

Hi guys!

For those who have a product that is displayed on mobile and desktop, how did you build your design system? Do you have one single design system or one for each?

Giving that some of our platform components are quite different from one to the other we are thinking about building two design systems, but then once we’ll search for an asset we won’t be able to know from which design system it comes from.

Still getting used to Figma here, so I’m hoping you guys can help me!


I have found this article quite helpful when I had same questions.

It’s Figma’s official best practices article, and as always, there’s not one-size-fits-all, but it gives good tips on what are the pros and cons of each approach.

I hope you’ll find it helpful as well.
