Twenty-five years after the web began, we finally have a real toolkit for creating layouts. Combining CSS Grid, Flexbox, Multicolumn, Flow layout and Writing Modes gives us the technical ability to build layouts today without the horrible hacks and compromises of the past. But what does this mean for our design medium? How might we better leverage the art of graphic design? How will we create something practical, usable, and realistically doable?
In this hour-long talk captured live at An Event Apart DC 2019 (aneventapart.com/event/washington-dc-2019), Jen Simmons (aneventapart.com/speakers/jen-simmons) walks you through the thinking process of creating accessible & reusable page and component layouts.
