Web Directions Conferences for web and digital professionals

Video of the Week – Jen Simmons at Respond 2016

At Respond last year, Jen Simmons gave a very well received session on the current state of CSS layout and the role of Real Art Direction on the Web. Today, much more of what Jen described is possible, thanks to CSS Grid, so this seems like a good time to watch it again.

It also gives us an excuse to remind you that our Call For Proposals for THIS year’s Respond conference closes today! If this is the first you’ve heard of it and you want to submit a proposal but fear you’ll run out of time, contact us. We’ll work it out. Meantime, here’s Jen.
