Design Systems Vs UI Kits

Design system kits are elements that help maintain consistency easily. They may contain a sample UI kit. When your company has a design system, you have a library to call up commonly used elements, as opposed to designing them from scratch each time. If you are designing for the company's different brands, you can keep the same feeling for each brand, yet develop each brand's unique style.
