“We’re not designing pages anymore. We’re designing systems of components.” As with most things Stephen Hay says, he’s right. Over the past few years, we’ve seen the Web community create style tiles, element collages, style guides, pattern libraries and a slew of other tools in order to break interfaces down to their atomic elements. Our interfaces are going more places than ever before, so this shift is essential to help us better understand what our websites consist of in order for us create smart, scalable, maintainable designs.
This session will introduce atomic design, a methodology for creating robust design systems.
