Design systems are all about communication. To communicate patterns/process to devs or to use them to communicate tasks/content to users
Don't build *the* answer. Build something that can be combined to help people solve and answer their own problems.
Design systems are trans-disciplinary and cut across all parts of an org. If your design system team is homogenous it's set up for failure.
Any team developing a design system needs content creators or communicators as much as they need devs/designers/UX.
