  • Michelle Schulp: Rethinking Themes – Embracing Atomic Design With Gutenberg

    WordCamp Denver 2020Speaker: Michelle Schulp

    July 8, 2020 — When designing WordPress themes, one of the biggest challenges stems from a core component of WordPress itself: the ability for site owners to change, modify, and build new content themselves. After all, modern web content needs to be flexible and evolving, but not everyone is a developer who can build custom layouts to fit each use case.
    As content and functionality become even more modular thanks to advances like the Gutenberg editor, theme designers will have to accommodate even more flexible ways of visualizing and presenting information. How do we anticipate and accommodate the needs of a constantly evolving website while providing visual solutions that are clean, thoughtful, and consistent?
    In this talk, we’ll discuss the principles of Atomic Design, how to stop thinking of your content as “pages” and “posts” in favor of the concept of “building blocks”, and how to extend this mindset to utilize the potential of Gutenberg as it is now, and where it might be going in the future.
