Using a design system made a simple form page 47% faster to develop versus coding it from scratch.

It’s super tricky to measure the value of a design system, so the folks at Sparkbox had a great idea. They raced to see how fast it would take to build a design from scratch vs using a design system’s component library (in this case, IBM’s Carbon design system). Faster quality, more consistency, and better accessibility. Gotta love it.
