Atomic Design

Re to help Atomic Design details all that goes into creating and maintaining robust design systems allowing you to roll out higher uality consistent UIs faster than ever before This book introduces Initially I was a bit afraid that this book will be like loads of other in the field a glorified 200 page pitch of an idea with no tips or guides to help you through the actual process but I am delighted to say this is not the case Along with the numerous resources and projects around the topics covered that Brad has made with his friends this is a very handy guide for diving into creating proper design systems

FREE READ Atomic Design

We're tasked with making interfaces for users in contexts using browsers on devices with screen sizes and capabilities than ever before That's a daunting task indeed Thankfully design systems are he To be clear even though I enjoyed Brad Frost s Atomic Design which I picked up because of it landing on one of those Best UX Books of 2016 lists I m always reading this is less a book about design itself and about how to be a designer within a group environment like a corporate office The beginning chapters give a good overview of how to build up the elements of a website or app from their tiniest indivisible pieces a single button for example to a larger configuration a sign in form containing a button to a larger configuration than that a web page s header section for example containing that sign in form and eventually the entire page but there s nothing here regarding that topic that can t already be found in the many free guides online to the BEM system just to name one example Then in the meanwhile the vast majority of the chapters are actually devoted to how to document these various pieces so that all the stakeholders of a company are on board with a single vision the kinds of cloud based software available for sharing these design pattern documents how to actually come up with a finished document when there s anywhere from a handful to hundreds of people working on it and how to maintain that document afterwards so that it remains an always fluid always relevant guide for the rest of the company not just some aging PDF file that became immediately obsolete a week after the UXUI team released it in the first place In all of this then the book is uite handy and valuable but just go into it not expecting it to actually teach you very much about how to design these elements themselves

    Possibly the most watered down book I've ever forced me to read through nonetheless Frost seeds the book with a very appealing idea – building coherent design systems starting from the most basic elements and combining them up in useful composite patterns – and then stays well clear from till it to ripeness he just doesn't seem to care

    I think this is a solid book It's well laid out and the information is easy to grasp It's great for starting a design system from scratch And it gives you the taxonomy to discuss a well managed design system or pattern library It gives you the nomenclature Ideally you've been using atoms molecules organisms etc as you build your design library After the fact it's hard to reverse engineer or remediate code wit
