Pattern Lab + Content Modeling on existing and new sites

Presenters: dgrisier

Atomic design, content modeling, pattern lab, components: these may all seem like drastically different approaches to website development, but the truth is that you can use them together to build a beautifully structured site that behaves in a more predictable manner -- and helps speed up your launch timeline.

The use of these tools and approaches also relies upon a shared understanding of the overall site structure across content editors, writers, designers, strategists, and developers.

In our session, we will discuss some common pitfalls in website planning and building; where sites “go wrong;” and how to steer the structure of your website in the right direction, reducing the amount of headaches and frustrations across the team.

Our approach can be applied to both existing sites with legacy content as well as new sites built from scratch.  

Takeaways will include:

  • Content modeling: Understanding how to make your content work for you
  • Pattern Lab: Knowing how to “future proof” design elements
  • Page layout and back-end functionality: Giving controlled flexibility to Content Editors
