To me, Sophia Prater’s OOUX is a perfect corollary to atomic design. Atomic design helps teams think about user interfaces in a thoughtful, considered, and structural manner, and OOUX does the same for the objects and content that flows through those user interfaces. That’s why I see atomic design and OOUX as a fantastic one-two punch: they both help teams break big, gnarly problems down into smaller pieces in order to create thoughtful systems that govern great (and complex!) user experiences.
As you probably know, Brad Frost is the author of "Atomic Design," the creator of pattern lab, and a design systems advocate and educator. In this episode of the podcast, Sophia and Brad discuss how technology is like a river, why it's important for everyone on a project to have a shared language, and how design systems are like furniture parts.
