I’m a UX Designer for a software company and my goal next year to have a well structured design system.
We have our product on 5 different platforms (iOS, Android, Web, TV, and Apple TV) All these platforms have their unique users, some specific designs, interactions, animations and UI.
But our design language, the look and feel is so similar. CTAs are same, colours are same, typography is same so most of the foundations are same across all platforms.
I have one design system created in Figma at the moment which we are using for the Web. When I need a component for iOS I use the Web’s components and maybe slightly tweak it.
My question is do you think I need to have 5 different design systems for each platform or one global design system to rule all?
Also, can you copy across the components from one design system to another?
Creating 5 design systems sounds too much work but having one, I need to be so specific for each time I design a component.
Would love to hear your opinions and experiences.
