Design Project Organized

Design Project Structure

Based on atomic design principles I will share to you a methodology to organize design projects. I been reading about atomic design for a while and I think it is a perfect idea to bring concepts like, divide and conquer and re-usability to design. Today I found an article explaining an approach to organize projects based on atomic design and I want to try it!

In order to help myself and apply it I made a cheat-sheet that explains the different concepts and how the design project should be structured.

It is crucial to communicate the system to the whole team you work with, so we can all be in the same page and also, to make work collaboration smooth. Big tutorials and presentations can help to incorporate this concepts but when it comes to the day to day work it is better to have something simple and visual.

How to measure design effectiveness

Nov 5, 2014
I found a method that seems to be very useful to test how effective an user interface is. The exercise is just about taking your design with a collection of words that convey positive, negative or neutral feelings and share it with others, so they can choose which words spring to their minds when looking at the design.
