Jon gives some insight into how and why we use pattern portfolios as deliverables at Clearleft.
Here are some nice patterns that Paul uses for starting points in his own projects.
The Guardian’s front-end patterns library. The modules section contains their equivalent of a pattern primer. Very nice!
Paul has open-sourced his front-end style guide and put it up on Github. It’s a very handy starting point for making your own.
Anna goes through some of her favourite pattern libraries. It’s really, really great to see this stuff getting documented.
I met one of the guys from the Starbucks team at South by Southwest and he mentioned that they had a markup pattern library. I encouraged them to make it public, and it here it is!
I really hope that more companies and agencies will start sharing stuff like this.
Bootstrap is Twitter’s CSS and markup style guide—very similar to the pattern portfolios that we often provide as deliverables at Clearleft.
Use strong, definite language in your writing. Make that sentence your bitch.
Paul has created a site for tracking usage of the BBC’s GEL (Global Experience Language) visual design language. Nice’n’responsive it is too.
Paul gives an excellent and thorough explanation of why systems thinking is important in web design.
