Once again,

Patterns Day
EVENT

will be in the magnificent Duke of

York
GPE

’s cinema in

Brighton
GPE

, with its historic charm and dangerously comfortable seats.

The first

Patterns Day
EVENT

was all the way back in

2017
DATE

. Then we had the

second
ORDINAL


Patterns Day
EVENT

in

2019
DATE

. You can watch videos of the talks from

both years
DATE

.

We all know what happened after

2019
DATE

. Nothing like a global pandemic to stop an event in its tracks.

Now, finally,

Patterns Day
EVENT

is returning in

2024
DATE

.

After all this time, is there still a need for an event focused on design systems?

In my opinion, the answer is “more than ever!”

When

Clearleft
NORP


first
ORDINAL

ran

Patterns Day
EVENT

, we had been doing design systems work for a while, but other organisations were only at the start of their journey. Many of the attendees were from companies that were dabbling in design systems, or planned to put a design system together.

That situation has changed. Now most organisations either have at least some experience with design systems. Many companies have got design systems up and running.

But the challenges haven’t gone away. They’ve just changed. You might no longer need to convince anyone that a design system is a good idea, but you might well be struggling to convince people to use the design system you’ve got.

It can be lonely work. That’s why

Patterns Day
EVENT

is so vital. It’s a chance to get together with other people going through the same struggles. You’ll have an opportunity to learn from their successes and failures. Most of all, you’ll have the reassurance that you are not alone.

I know that makes it sound more like therapy than a conference, but honestly, that’s where the true value lies.

We’ve already got some fantastic speakers lined up, but there are just as many still to come!

Can you tell that I’m very excited about this?

It would be lovely to see there. Tickets will cost £

255
MONEY

, but you can secure your place now at the super early bird price of

just £195
MONEY

. Dither ye not!

Can’t wait to see you in

Brighton
GPE

on

March 7th
DATE

—it’s going to be a day to remember!
