Exploring Flexible Design Systems with Drupal’s Layout Builder
Advanced content management in digital platforms has matured into a set of powerful design paradigms — rows, components, and styles. Oomph Inc.‘s latest project with the RISD Museum created a design system that offered a system of 14 colors, 15 layouts, 6 style options, 12 animation options, 25 text styles, and 5 content types. The resulting layouts surprised the team, utilizing a rich mix of video, animations, and typography that they had not totally foreseen.
This presentation will show the tools and how the design system is constructed. Then we will explore the pages that the RISD Museum team created in advance of their upcoming “Raid the Icebox Now” retrospective and reimagining.
