About this project
PatternsLibrary is the next-generation tool to aide designers within organizations to establish direction and alignment around the branding and design assets they create.
Design trends evolve over time, PatternsLibrary enables organizations to be agile. Designers and branding experts within an organization can set the direction of the organization's visual design styles by documenting them in a centralized repository. As a web-based tool, PatternsLibrary then empowers designers and branding experts within an organization to create alignment around their official visual design styles.
Through increased communication and sharing of branding elements, design assets, and even related code snippets, PatternsLibrary aides organizations to improve efficiency and minimize redundant efforts.
Atoms to Patterns
PatternsLibrary leverages concepts of atomic and molecule design elements, to track and maintain your design patterns. While atoms are the principal nodes of elements in chemistry, the PatternsLibrary has been crafted to allow organizations to capture the smallest of their design styles, as atoms, and how those small atoms interconnect throughout the design styles. The comprehensive composition of the individual atoms together make up design patterns, as specific combinations of design styles and the context of their use cases. As the PatternsLibrary is built and launched, more information will be provided.
Why a "Library?"
In a brick-and-mortar libary, there are bookcases of books. Over time, new books will be added and some books will be phased out. In many regards, this is the same philosophy that applies to design styles of an organization. Just as design trends evolve over time, so do design styles for most organizations. The PatternsLibrary provides a web-based mechanism to capture those design styles and design patterns as a centralized repository for everyone within your organization.
The patterns library built by UX professionals for UX professionals. After working in the web & UX disciplines for 16+ years, and from numerous conversations with fellow user experience experts, we've decided to build a cloud-based solution for communicating and sharing design patterns with your colleagues and peers.
