About This Class

Design better digital products with a design system! Join web developer Brad Frost to learn how you can build a truly flexible, effective system that lasts.

Now more than ever before, designers, developers, and product managers are using design systems to improve and simplify their work. Through clear guidelines and easy-to-use components, design systems keep everyone aligned, enabling everyone to spend less time on repeating tasks and more time on the creative work that matters.

After working with many organizations to develop customized design systems, Brad saw the need for a straightforward approach that anyone could use to create a more effective system from scratch. His solution? The Atomic Design method.

This 60-minute class will teach you to build a custom design system using Brad's tried-and-true step-by-step method.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Conduct an interface inventory to start your initiative
  • Choose the right pilot project to guide your system
  • Build your design system with the atomic design method
  • Adapt your design system as your needs change

Plus, Brad shares his favorite tools, exercises, and templates to make it easy for you to get started right away.

Whether you’re building your first design system from scratch or are looking to improve on a system that’s already in place, this class will give you the tools you need to create a flexible design system that can grow and evolve as quickly as you do!
