How I streamlined my design process with a few nested symbols on Sketch

Hey Raphaël!

Glad you tried out the nested technique and adjusted it to fit into your workflow. We’ve gotten so used to the overrides in UX Power Tools that things are very quick for us, and we still love being able to centrally manage all symbols in one spot. I’m curious as to why your pages took you 10 days to design, but everyone’s process is different, so I’m not one to question ☺️ That said, there’s definitely a balance between not using symbols at all, and over-nesting them.

I think this is a cool solution that I’ll definitely consider once we’ve locked down the common elements and actions in design systems for our clients.
