Patterns in language and language in patterns.
Imagine you are a new component part. You’re part of a pattern that lives inside the ecosystem of a complex new design. You have an important job to do with several responsibilities. But what are they?
At the very least, you need to be sure of the role you play in the big picture. It’s a difficult job. Developers, designers, content strategists and teams of experts all work for you. They have a stake in your wellbeing and their own. But they have so many ideas and practical requirements! It’s easy to lose sight of your identity.
This talk looks at practical ways to get a grip on your identity, tone and story at the start of the design process. It should leave you with a holistic understanding of ways to consider content in relation to modular design, so that your patterns serve both the users and the team over time.
