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.

Some pretty mind-bendingly cool uses for CSS custom props from @MiriSuzanne – color, layout & animation all in css and only using JS to feed data.

Well that was awesome!!! “If you think CSS is a dumb language, you’re a dumb language — CSS IS AWESOME!” @MiriSuzanne thank you so much for the amazing talk!

Miriam has always been nothing but spot-on, professional, funny, while also being extremely knowledgeable, smart, polite and always on time.

So stoked @mirisuzanne is @vueconfus !!! look at how cool CSS is ~ and all the squishy things it does.

User Unfriendly at Agnes Scott College

on with Miriam Suzanne in Atlanta, GA

The web is more than a technology platform, it was created with a mission statement. Design and code trends also come with attached philosophies, and we need to consider the implications. We’ll talk about our human-centered approach to product-design – learning to understand user-feedback, designing for edge-cases, transparent client communication, and tightly integrated design and development teams.
