For the fourth chapter in our series on Designing a Successful Product, we sit down with Mr. Brad Frost to discuss Atomic Design and creating visual systems. Brad takes us through the benefits of designing systems rather than individual pages. We chat about Pattern Lab, creating style guides, and how to sell someone on the approach. We do all of this with the grace and elegance of a gazelle.
