Responsive Design: From Pages To Pattern Libraries (1/2 Day)
You figured out this whole “responsive design” thing, but now you’re hearing talk of “design systems” and “pattern libraries.” Before you throw your “laptop” out a “window,” come to this mini-workshop! We’ll look at strategies for translating your designs into reusable patterns, and see how different teams put those patterns to work for them. We’ll also talk about different software options for building pattern libraries, and figure out strategies for choosing the best one for you.
Making Design Systems Work
Navigating the challenges of building and maintaining a robust design system.
Design systems offer tremendous promise:
- Consistency across multiple experiences
- Improved designer and developer efficiency
- Rapid ramp-up times for new or transitioning employees
But they also come with their own challenges:
- Managing team collaboration
- Getting buy-in from stakeholders
- Implementation challenges
- Budget and timeline constraints
We believe the benefits of design systems can outweigh these concerns. With some careful planning, we can help you navigate these tough challenges associated with scaling a useful design system in a fast-moving, growing organization.
In this workshop, Kasey and Nathan will guide you through their experiences helping multiple clients facing these same difficulties.
