Confab - Modular content: Designing in pieces for flexible experiences

Speaker Session

Join Rosamund Lannin at Confab 2020! 

As component-based design becomes more commonplace, it brings with it the opportunity to adapt content to a modular framework. But incorporating information into a design system can be a process. Challenges like streamlining copy, template dependency, and image sourcing make content strategy critical: a successful, sustainable design system means a common understanding that content should be intentional and flexible.

In this session, Rosamund will demonstrate how working with a predefined set of pieces doesn’t have to limit expression — how breaking free from the idea of content as a fixed spot on a webpage helps express ideas in a fresh and lasting way.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Why having endless space and no restrictions actually makes it harder to craft good content
  • How a strong up-front content strategy supports component-based UI design
  • Common challenges and solutions related to incorporating information into design systems
