Elements: Elements are the foundational building blocks of a system. They are things like brand colors, iconography, typography, and more. They are necessary to ensure whatever you create looks cohesive and is on brand.
Patterns: Patterns are repeatable configurations of the aforementioned elements that perform specific functions through user interactions. They are things like buttons, inputs, drop-downs, and more. They are integral to ensuring your users are able to accomplish their goals.
Components: Components convey meaning by combining patterns to support specific content types. They are things like page headings, carousels, menus, cards, accordions, and more. They combine patterns to make them user-friendly and to clearly convey purpose.
Templates: Templates create context by strategically combining and arranging components to support the overall page purpose. They are things like Program Details, Faculty Profiles, News Articles, and more.
