Designers at Google, Facebook, Apple, Airbnb, DropBox...obviously you have established design languages that guide what you do. However, do you have to present every project you do to a central panel or team that will approve or reject your work? Like—do you have a multi-step approval process to get things done?
No central approval either. Other structures are in place: 1) internal site for docs with guidelines, 2) ambassadors embedded in all business units, 3) weekly open office for check ins, 4) slack goalie channel, 5) figma/slack plug in that syncs libraries and lastly 6) a dedicated design ops team that can help “productionize” designs to meet component spec as a service. That team sits adjacent to our DLS team.
