Hi, I’m Brian Dys — a photographer from the inside looking out · a composer entangled in electronic music · a UX designer · a spouse, a parent, & everything in between.
Ideally, design guides, brand guidelines, style guides, etc. are based on research.
They did not appear in a vacuum.
Collaborate with the people who made the guides and find out if you are aligned with the same objectives.
The user and business objectives are the guidelines for the team, whether in UI design or frontend development.
