Switchfly Pattern Library

One of the biggest challenges for Switchfly when moving from their old tech stack to a new one was how to go about making sure UI elements look and were built consistently,

We moved forward with creating a pattern library in the hopes of offering a straightforward way to duplicate existing design and functionality on any page of the application.

Developing a central pattern library has helped increase speed and efficiency for the engineers and designers who can reuse functionality and design, while ensuring consistency and preventing branching and tech debt. We’ve also included a section in each pattern definition for accessibility where a pattern should be keyboard accessible or how they should be interpreted by a screen reader.
