Has Layout Builder surpassed the Paragraphs module as the way to build a set of flexible components for design systems? This talk will cover the pros and cons of both approaches and dive into a real world example project that is using Layout Builder with custom built design controls for layout, color, size, spacing, animation and more.

The RISD Publication platform, called Codex, is a platform to produce multimedia content in support of gallery exhibitions and scholarly research. The RISD team has taken the tools that we have produced and started to create “publications” that are more like artwork themselves. Layers of video, audio, imagery and text are being combined in ways that the system supports, but that we did not fully imagine as we built it. Session will include examples from Codex as well as code snippets from the projects internal workings.
