    Proxy is what’s in store

    You may not need anything more

    When adding interactivity to a web app, it can be tempting to reach for a framework to manage state. But sometimes, all you need is a Proxy.

    CSS @scope

    Keep selector conflicts to a minimum

    The new @scope rule is here! It’s a better way to keep our component styles contained – without relying on third-party tools or extreme naming conventions.

OddBird became an extension of our team bringing UX, frontend, and backend brilliance to take MetaDeploy from an idea into a production application.

Other developers build exactly what you say, or they don’t understand, and develop the wrong thing. OddBird always thinks about the project goals. I defer to the team expertise now, which makes a better result.

Jump Start Sass, by Miriam Suzanne and Kitty Giraudel

As core contributors to CSS, Sass, and Django, we write the books, help create the languages, and build the OSS projects millions of other developers rely on. Bringing that expertise to your custom web projects, we focus on accessibility, performance, resilient design systems, and well-tested code.

Full Range of Services:

  • Branding & Logo Design
  • User Research & Concepting
  • UI/UX Design (OOUX)
  • Python on the backend (Django, FastAPI)
  • CSS & Sass on the frontend
  • JavaScript (Svelte, Vue, React, Node, etc.)
  • Design Systems & Component Libraries
  • Accessible HTML

OddBird was the wise investment. We could have selected a cheaper avenue for this work – we would have paid for it manifold in the long run.

Since OddBird thinks about handoff from the beginning, maintenance has been super easy. For example, 100% unit test coverage was a given. I never had to ask for it.

Hi, I’m Miriam

I co-founded OddBird with my brothers in 2008 as a full-stack, boutique agency to provide custom web application design & development, along with refactors for integrated design systems, accessibility, performance, and long-term sustainability.

Since then OddBird has become an industry leader – from our work on Django, Sass, and Susy, to the CSS Working Group, Mozilla Developer Channel, Object Oriented UX, and in-depth conference talks on front-end architecture, workflow, component libraries, testing, and documentation.

We’d love to help you thoughtfully serve people with technology.
