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.

CSS Is Rad at Smashing Conf Austin

on with Miriam Suzanne in Austin, TX

Depending who you ask, CSS is either awesome or broken. CSS is not a programming language, unless it is. CSS is too simple and entirely too difficult. CSS is weird – not like other languages, and not like print design either, but trapped in a strange middle ground with unique rules and constraints.
