Design System (Core Components)
A design system is a set of standards to manage design at scale by reducing redundancy while creating a shared language and visual consistency across different pages and channels. It is a library of digital components that can be used to scale a product intuitively and quickly instead of building components from scratch.

Figma pages stoplight system
These pages are either currently being evaluated and ideated, being designed, or ready for development. We use the stoplight system so everyone can quickly see the state of the new features. To use the stoplight system you can add the emojis 🔴 🟡 🟢 🔵 ◻️ before the name of your Figma page.
Published pages are pages that have been designed, approved, tested, developed, and are deployed to a production environment. We keep track of these pages in case we want to make changes to them in the future.
This is where designs go to die. Don't worry we keep them here so that we can easily grab old content/designs to reuse for the future. Sometimes an idea is not working right now, but it might work in the future. Instead of having to redo all the work that went into the idea, the designer can just grab it out of the graveyard.
