Thank you Hugo, this was one of the reasons I wrote this article.

Sadly, you are correct.

Web design is forgotten occupation, but we used to create design systems and our own frameworks for each project.

Those who have inherited web design (UI and UX designers) no longer know how to code, while once large area of frontend development is today considered to be only javascript engineering. That has left a void when it comes to CSS since it is easier for everyone to use premade framework than to create something on their own.

It is troubling that most people see this part of the job as unnecessary and as "reinvention of the wheel". It only shows how huge this problem has become.
