Atomic Design System


Having worked in domains like Medtech and Fintech, I realize the importance of a detailed design system and the consistency it brings. Building a design system is akin to planning and constructing a city. Imagine a city without proper roads, neighborhoods, or parks – it would be confusing and chaotic. Similarly, a solid foundation for a design system is crucial. It’s like the strong base that holds everything together and ensures the whole system functions smoothly.

I have been developing a scalable atomic design system to maintain consistency across multiple projects. While it is still a work in progress and will continuously evolve, I would like to share the current state of the project.

Atomic Design System:
Just as the natural world consists of tiny atomic elements that form the building blocks of matter, the design world can follow a similar principle with atomic design. At its core, atomic design is broken down into five hierarchical levels: atoms, molecules, organisms, templates, and pages. Atoms are the basic building blocks, such as buttons, labels, or icons. These atoms combine to form molecules, which are more complex components like forms or cards.
Moving up the hierarchy, we encounter organisms, which are groups of molecules working together to create sections or functional units within a design, such as a header or a complete form. Templates provide the overarching layout structure for various pages. Finally, pages represent the specific instances where templates are populated with real content.
