Sorry, I'm not sure if we missed each other's point. Yeah I meant with "integration" also applying the changes to the production website, something which we would do. We don't expect to "hand off" designs and others to implement them, as often times they end up not in the same way we all envisioned the design. 

Also, to my understanding the website should use the style guide on a component level, not layout level, so some things should stay decoupled.

In any case, I'd like to improve the visual appearance and usability of the website as I don't think it does the project justice the way it is presented right now (please don't get me wrong). If you have a clear idea on what you could need help with, we'd be happy to see how we can help.
