The MailChimp Pattern Library is a byproduct of our move to a more responsive, nimble, & intuitive app.
Over the course of two full redesigns and our recent navigation refresh
, we've worked to distill most of the MailChimp interface into a set of atomic pieces
, forming the pattern library you see here. By documenting and assembling a reference site of our patterns, we were able to speed up our process and solve some internal communication problems. A common lexicon of code and UI elements benefits us in a few ways:
- We can build consistently, focusing our energy on workflows and logic, not web forms and list items.
- We can reuse code instead of reinventing the wheel or roping in an engineer.
- We can see all of our patterns in one place, quickly revealing maintenance issues.
