UX Camp: Front-End Camp 2017

The Great State of Design with CSS Grid Layout & Friends

For far too long we’ve been forced to reuse layout patterns that have worked in the past, creating a web full of sites that all look the same. Lack of browser support, no true layout system, and designers who are forced to make safe decisions for budget or timeline reasons have led us to create work that is rarely creative nor inspiring.

I’ve spent years exploring how we can make the web a more unique space. Many CSS properties have been overlooked, but support has grown and many of these features are available now or can be used as enhancements. One of these new features is CSS Grid Layout, which will play a major role in layout design. Having a true, 2 dimensional grid will give our layouts much more flexibility and it is on us to explore the possibilities.

Curing Design Complacency

We may have a design epidemic on our hands: Complacency. Many factors can contribute to becoming complacent as a designer, and fortunately there are numerous ways to push your work beyond “good enough”! I’ve spent many years exploring techniques that can get designers out of their comfort zone and break away from the “this what we’ve always done” mind set. Together, we will walk through the symptoms and discuss treatment options.

Designers have a greater impact on this world than we realize. Far too often I’ve seen designers settle for less than what they are capable of. Putting time and effort into a big pile of blah can leave us feeling powerless and unmotivated. Let’s focus on how to keep pushing past the status quo to create something in which we can all be proud.
