Independent product designer, front-end developer, digital nomad—Nicole Dominguez helps create more accessible technology and more inclusive teams.
This is a different kind of episode. Usually I invite guests to listen to them, in this episode I start out with an explanation of why I think the website for the new Master Digital Design program at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam is not well designed. And after that I discuss this together with Harald Dunnink, who designed this website. As was to be expected, he disagrees with me.
Harald invited me to record this conversation after I ranted my opinion on twitter. It turns out sitting on a bench on a nice summer evening outside the Momkai offices in Amsterdam is a much better environment to discuss good web design than twitter.
Anna and Brad talk about what’s changed since the first season of the Style Guides Podcast, and talk about what topics they’d like to cover this season.
Author and designer Jeremy Keith talks about his new book, Resilient Web Design, and why we keep making the same mistakes over and over.
Grid is getting a ton of support in modern browsers and so we’ve got a couple of grid experts in Jen Simmons and Rachel Andrew on to help us navigate the grid – what is it? When can we use it? How do flexbox and grid play together? What about Bootstrap?

Internet veterans Jim @Coudal & Jeffrey @Zeldman on the death of blogging, the birth of Field Notes, the virtues of a subscription model, and much more. Begins in tears, ends in triumph. One of the most fun (and most inspiring) episodes ever.
ProPublica (@ProPublica) design director David Sleight (@stuntbox) is Jeffrey Zeldman’s guest.
How do publications brand themselves when a platform removes their fonts, art, and layout? What is “journalism in the public interest” and how does it differ from traditional reporting? What is bespoke web design and how does it work at ProPublica? What’s next for the ProPublica platform? How do newspapers retain readers in the age of AMP?
ProPublica (“Journalism in the Public Interest”) was a recipient of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting, the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in National Reporting, and a 2010 Pulitzer Prize in Investigative Reporting. David is a publication designer and web geek, formerly at BusinessWeek, Pearson Ed, and consulting land.
I’m having a hard time containing my excitement for CSS grid: a spec thats been in the works for a while, but is finally here! News of grid has been exploding in popularity on the web as its becoming increasingly implemented in browsers (upvote here for Edge). Firefox also just came out with a pretty sweet Grid editing view in its developer tools, and I imagine Chrome will soon, too.
This was one of the most interesting, thoughtful and funny conversations we’ve had. We spoke to Chris Coyier about dogmatism (the expression of an opinion or belief as if it were a fact) in the web industry. We talked about why it happens, what we can to do be less dogmatic ourselves and how to deal with dogmatic people and their bombastic opinions.
Our Toolstar this week was CodePen Projects, zero setup, full-featured front end web development environment, right in the browser. Chris talked us through it, and it sounds pretty great. We like all the CodePen things.
It was a diverse Jukebox this week. I chose ‘A Tender History In Rust’ by Do Say Make Think. Ben chose ‘Eve’ by Anchorsong, it’s very Ben. And Chris chose ‘The Stable Song’ by Gregory Alan Isakov, and had a very cool story of meeting him IRL. They’ll be added to the Relative Paths Alt Playlist, or the Relative Paths Playlist as appropriate.
