Publishing Color Library vs Design System Using Same HEX


I’m not really sure how to write a topic for this question. The question is this:

We have a Design System which is used for all the things you use one for.

HOWEVER, we have a need to build a separate “Master file” for building other things. Like a google ad or a social media post, etc.

In the Design System we have colors (Seafoam or Midnight). We have those colors AND others when building these other digital materials.


Can I creative a separate Design System that uses two color pallets BUT has some cross over (Seafoam or Midnight) AND link to both libraries?

Thoughts? Suggestions?

I’m thinking the best option is to NEVER link to both libraries and just keep them as two things.
