Pattern libraries that work!

A 45 minute Case Study by:

Thomas Foster


About this Case Study

Listen to a story about the challenges, mistakes and lessons I've faced setting up a pattern library that has achieved what I wanted it to. Together, we'll review a proposed list of principles that will be useful as we return to our desks.

From building a collective of designers able to deliver quality interaction design, to partnering with the Brand group through a major rebrand, and agreeing governance and support models for internal and external teams in a variety of locations, the success of a pattern library depends on a range of factors.

I hope you will find this useful - the session includes a discussion to share your own stories and principles.
