Cosmos Work is still in the process of being developed and is currently unable to be used in current app builds. 

In terms of understanding what best practices are for design (not dev), we will be updating Pega.Design in the coming months to help folks onboard more smoothly.

Hi, I have a question from a designer point of view ... Both the Cosmos and the PegaUIkit .sketch files are very comprehensive which is very nice.
Although Cosmos can't be used in the next period of time, for me as a designer it is important to know how to use these .Sketch files.

- Are they both for understanding all available elements and to use in designs / mockups?
- Is it an option to divert them into the corporate style and use in designs (yes) but use them as reference for dev to use in future releases?
At this point it is not clear to me what to expect from it.

Hope to hear from you, thanks in advance,

Good question. Our goal is that the .sketch file will reflect only the assets available you can build with out of the box. That being said, the .sketch file is getting regular updates, so some assets may change in appearance, complexity, etc. As dev updates, the .sketch file will as well.

As for flexibility for use with alternate corporate colors, we are currently defining how and what will be allowed to change in the design system. If you have specific things in your mind that must change for alternate branding, we'd love to know about that.
