A roller coaster called Design Systems

There is a famous wooden roller coaster, The Giant Dipper, built-in 1924 at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk that still entertains visitors today. The classic up-and-down action is enough to thrill you every time.

Like this roller coaster, there are many ups and downs in building a design system at a corporate scale.

With their fast speeds and quick changes, roller coasters keep you super alert, entertained, and provide a feeling of accomplishment. As soon as the ride stops, you know right away if you want to go again, or never return. I keep getting back on this one.
