Design workflow when using a Magento theme? : web_design

I’m a graphic designer who has worked on several custom web design projects. I build the responsive breakpoint comps in illustrator and then hand them off to dev. However, I’ve been tasked with a new project that will consist of picking a Magento theme as the starting point. The issue I’m struggling with is understanding the workflow now that I’ll be confined to the parameters and functionality of whatever the theme has to offer.
How do other teams mock up what they want the site to look like? How are you supposed to know all of your options when it comes to aesthetic styling, placement, and especially functionality? How do I know if an extension will work with the theme I’ve chosen? Is it efficient at all to be creating page comps (Illustrator? Photoshop? XD?) or does this whole process require a designer and front end dev to sit together and work through piece by piece?

I’d appreciate ANY insight you have into the creative process of using a theme, I’m really having trouble wrapping my head around it.

Thank you!
