From Pages to Patterns

by Charlotte Jackson

Published October 29, 2016 in Design

The process of building a pattern library or any kind of modular design system requires a different approach to building a set of finished pages. Even when the final deliverable is a pattern library, we often still have to design pages for approval.
When everyone is so used to working with pages, it can be difficult to adopt a new way of thinking—particularly for those who are not designers and developers.
This talk looks at how we can help everyone in the team adopt pattern thinking. This includes anyone with a decision to make—not just designers and developers. The whole team can start developing a shared vocabulary and attempt to make the challenge of naming things a little easier.
