Traditional web design is all about the mockup, a series of fully designed pages that a developer then turns into templates and a theme. This kind of web design can create websites that are harder to maintain or extend in the future; if it’s not in the original mockup, we have no idea what to do! In recent years, however, a new method has emerged: designing with patterns – small, reusable mini-designs that are combined to create templates of any sort. We’ll learn three connected topics: what pattern libraries are all about; how they make life better for designers, developers, and clients; and how to work with a pattern library when building WordPress themes. By the end of the presentation, you’ll feel comfortable with the idea of designing and developing with patterns, and know how to start improving your work with pattern libraries.
