About Us

Speaking & Training

Conferences, workshops, and more…

We’re constantly learning from the inspiration and mentoring of others, so we like to pass that knowledge along: talking and writing about the tools and practices that have helped improve our work. We also provide workshops and in-house trainings – to help improve design systems, designer-developer communication, site performance, and accessibility.

Don’t Use My Grid System at Boulder Python

on with Miriam Suzanne in Boulder, CO

Miriam (the creator of Susy) will show you the history of web layout, how grid systems work, and practical tips to avoid using them. For those few cases where a grid really is required, we’ll talk about the best ways to roll your own, so you’re not relying on a bloated library to make decisions for you. We’ll also look at the new layout toys — from flexbox to CSS Grid — and how to get started with only a few lines of code.
