Design Toolkits & Style Tiles

The lecture on Design Toolkits and Style tiles briefly talks about the needs of different components for building a suite of products: brand elements: logo, type, color, atomic elements; interaction patterns, components and other pieces that come together and build on each other to make up a rich toolkit. We looked at what makes a style tile useful and at examples from around the web. Then expanding on that to consider page templates, grids, components and full toolkits with examples from a variety of companies.
