Full-day workshop • September 13th
We've all been there: once a shiny, new, thoroughly crafted website becomes outdated, inconsistent, bloated and expensive to maintain.
We often talk about atoms, molecules and templates, yet how can we make sense of all of those fancy particles in our day-to-day work? In her new workshop, Alla Kholmatova, the interaction designer behind the open education platform FutureLearn, explores how we can design and build responsive interfaces that would stand the test of time.
Can we continue scaling the platform, without losing its original essence and making it feel like it’s been patched together? Can we keep our code clean, flexible and future-proof long-term? Can we be prepared for any new requirements — however unpredictable they might be (adapting a website for VR, for example?). Yes, we can — by moving away from designing pages towards designing systems.
You'll also take away a few common stumbling blocks, a few lessons learned and a plethora of practical, hands-on tips on establishing a pattern language within your company.
We won’t be touching too much on code; instead, the workshop will focus on design techniques and practical ways of creating a scalable, flexible and modular design system — applicable to both small and large web projects.
The workshop is intended for visual, interaction and UX designers as well as front-end developers who are still seeking for just the right responsive design process and deliverables.
A laptop with Sketch/Photoshop/Text editor or another design tool of your choice. Come well rested and enthusiastic with your favorite stationary at hand.
