Since Atomic Design enables designers and developers to establish a round-trip workflow process that traverses from abstract concepts to concrete details; and given the challenges associated with risk compliance for people needing accommodations (Visual, Motion, Motor, Auditory, Cognitive/Learning), what if:

  • We applied Atomic Design concepts towards the development of accessibly compliant solutions, yielding consistency and scalability while mitigating regulatory risk?
  • An atomic design system could allow us to apply reuse, scaling, Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery in the creation of user experiences?
  • We had design and development libraries that were associated with each other? If changes happened in one they would be pushed to the other.
  • We could create an atomic design system that was rooted in accessibility, assuring all components met accessibility guidelines?
  • We could update atomic elements and roll changes across all products in minutes rather than months or years?
  • We could align desktop and mobile experiences?
  • We could seamlessly deliver light and dark mode experiences that meet WCAG guidelines?
  • We could provide on-demand, profile-aware experiences that addressed a user's specific accessibility needs?
