Patterns Day

Brighton, England

A one-day event for designers and developers focused on design systems, pattern libraries, style guides, and components.

Tickets—Sold Out

Tickets were £175+VAT but they’re sold out now.

There are no refunds. But if you bought a ticket and now you can’t make it to Patterns Day after all, you can give your ticket to someone else — you can change the ticket details at any time.


My name is Jeremy Keith. I’ll be your host for Patterns Day. I’ll be introducing these world-class speakers.

Patterns Day will have something for everyone: designers, developers, content strategists, product owners, project managers …we all face the challenges of creating and maintaining robust design systems.

Spend a day in Brighton in the company of your peers, learning all about modular design and development processes, illustrated with case studies of all shapes and sizes.

Registration is at 9am, the first talk is at 10am, and we’ll wrap up by 4:45pm. You can see the planned running order of talks, although this may change.

All the talks are being recorded, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Bulb.

In the breaks, tea, coffee, and pastries will be available, thanks to our kind sponsors Buildit @ Wipro Digital.

The lunch break is from 12:30 to 2pm, so there’s plenty of time to get something nice from one of the local establishments, like Café Rust or The Joker, both of which are offering discounts to Patterns Day attendees.

After the last talk, we’ll head ’round the corner to Holler Brewery for a (free!) drink and a chat.

Any questions? Get in touch.


Holler Brewery

Holler is a community based brewery, always at the centre of the local community. Here to make great beer, but also to help support community run pubs, carnival societies, mental health charities, children’s amateur dramatic groups, local arts groups and loads more, because these are what keep our communities healthy and together… the people in them!

Holler loves great beer and its way of bringing people together. They are excited to be welcoming the Patterns Day attendees and the design community to the taproom.

Terms and conditions:

  • One token entitles to you one Holler beer or one soft drink
  • Redeemable only on Friday 28th June 2019 between 4:45 and 20:00
  • You must hand your token over to the bar team


The first Patterns Day was held in the summer of 2017 (you can watch the videos). It was glorious! That’s why we’re doing it again—just look at all the nice things people said

Patterns Day will take place in the beautiful Duke of York’s Picturehouse in Brighton. It’s a gorgeous venue — one of the UK’s oldest cinemas. You’ll be very comfy indeed.

Duke of York’s Picturehouse, Preston Road, Brighton BN1 4NA

The venue is just a ten minute walk away from Brighton train station so if you’re coming down from London, it’s really handy.


The ground floor of the Duke Of York’s is accessible to customers with limited mobility including wheelchair users. The access toilet and auditorium are located on the ground floor. There are four wheelchair spaces in the auditorium. From the foyer there is a small ramp from which to access the auditorium.

I can reserve wheelchair spaces or seats in any particular part of the auditorium if this is helpful. Just let me know ahead of time.

Guide dogs are welcome. If want to bring your dog, let me know so that we can reserve an aisle seat for you. The Duke Of York’s staff will be happy to provide drinking water for your dog.
