To the Pattern Lab! Collaboration Using Modular Design Principles
Learn how to use styleguide/prototyping tools like Pattern Lab to increase collaboration between designers, themers, developers, and clients on Drupal projects. A focus on modular design early on in a Drupal project improves workflow and efficiency for the whole team.
After applying modular design principles into your design workflow you will have:
Shinier, more polished sites: You’ll improve collaboration between themers and designers without relying so much on static photoshop comps, dramatically improving the end product’s quality at a higher detail level.
Happier clients: Clients will be able to see functional visual designs earlier in the sprints, and be able to play with the site in an easy to use interface.
Happier developers: Developers can concentrate on the hard work of building the site while themers and designers concentrate on the visual design.
Project managers overcome with joy: Sites will be more easily themed, front-end bugs will be caught earlier, clients can see progress sooner, designers will be less bogged down in Photoshop iterations, and projects will be more successful.
