Next, discover what a UI Kit is and what differentiates it from a design system. Learn about interface design patterns and how to organize your files according to the methodology used by Migue.

Review the project you have chosen as a reference to create your UI Kit and analyze the components that must be created. Then, define your style guide by looking at the colors, the font, the grids, and icon sets.

Start creating the atoms, then combine them to create molecules before finally designing some screens with all of these components.

In the last unit, Migue teaches you how to use your UI Kit in Sketch as a library and how to keep it updated by adding components as needed.
