When it comes to designing and developing websites, one of the biggest topics today is the use of design systems and style guides. One of the newest design systems is called Atomic Design. Created by Brad Frost, Atomic Design is a system that uses atoms, molecules, and organisms as metaphors to break down a website into its basic components. In this presentation we’ll explore how Atomic Design works as well as how to use it using a tool called Pattern Lab.
