How do you translate this principle to your engineers?

Applying the idea of mirrored atomicity, when a designer thinks about a new sidebar element, he can now see more clearly the impact on the project. He knows that this component is a molecule that will use some preexisting atoms and quarks, but he will need to create a new icon (quark) and a font size will be needed (boson).

In practice, what I have observed is an increase in delivery speed and a decrease in friction between designers and engineers. When designers begin to abstract their layouts in the same way as engineers do — in this case, based on the atomic design of Brad Frost — the level of friction decreases, as the two begin to speak the same language.
