What are Components?

The most crucial part for creative designers is the components that can simultaneously convey information and perform functions representing the product’s purpose, principles, and philosophy.

Components are the user interface building blocks that help to create visual and functional consistency across products.

Each component is created by designers and coded by developers to address specific user interface needs such as presenting options, enabling features, providing feedback to the user, etc. As a result, they minimize the effort required to build the product. The development team can speed up workflow, save time, and avoid duplication by reusing as many components as possible, as interface elements don’t have to be recreated from scratch.

All design system components are designed to work harmoniously together as part of a unified whole.
