Thrilled that +Brad Frost is going to speak at Responsive Field Day about the challenges of keeping up on the web today. https://www.responsivefieldday.com

It is an awesome topic, but TBH, I'm most excited because it means we will have our long-awaited basketball showdown. ‪#‎goingtokickhisass‬

How do we deal with the overwhelming flood of Web tools and technologies? I I talked with Andy Clarke and Stephen Hay about that topic and more on the Unfinished Business podcast: https://stuffandnonsense.co.uk/blog/about/unfinished-business-115-extreme-tool-anxiety
We’re Stuff & Nonsense, a UK website design studio with a big reputation around the world because we design flexible websites that look fabulous on every type of device.

More on Styleguides.io: http://styleguides.io/examples.html
Companies and large projects will often develop a series of design rules in relation to branding, logos, icons, and mascots. These rules are referred to as style guides or alternatively branding guides. They’re used both internally for employees and externally for media kits. Traditionally these style guides were created as books which would be shared...

✎ Should you make a style guide first and website second? http://bradfrost.com/blog/post/style-guide-first/

Answer: creating a website and its underlying design system should be a concurrent process.
I'm working on a redesign for an old website. Should I begin by creating a style guide and then using it as a reference for myself or is the style guide born out of my redesign? The answer, complete with Dave's hilarious-yet-inaccurate impersonation of me (I've never said the word 'bro' before ...

Thanks for sharing the article and its informative links. To add a note; it seems every one sees the discussion of web vs. app from their perspective. Responsive vs. Adaptive vs. none. Thin client vs, thick. Since any decision comes with serious financial consequences, making the decision should be logical and broad reaching.

💩🔫 Introducing Death to Bullshit: http://deathtobullshit.com/ 

The site and blog (http://blog.deathtobullshit.com/ ) explore the themes of information, bullshit, and craft.

(Do yourself a favor and turn bullshit on.)
Turn bullshit on? We're bombarded by more information than ever before. With the rise of all this information comes a rise of the amount of bullshit we're exposed to. Death to Bullshit is a rallying cry to rid the world of bullshit and demand experiences that respect people and their time.

✎ Surfacing Invisible Elements http://bradfrost.com/blog/post/surfacing-invisible-elements/ 

Let's visualize tracking scripts in our pattern libraries to make better decisions in our organizations.
There's a National Geographic article that's been stuck in my mind for many years now. It discusses how overfishing will destroy the richness and diversity of ocean life if we don't radically alter our behavior. The post focuses on the decimation of the giant bluefin tuna, and the significant ...

✎ What's In A Name? http://atomicdesign.bradfrost.com/chapter-2/#whats-in-a-name Why does atomic design call things 'atoms', 'molecules' and 'organisms'? These names have an implied hierarchy and prove to be a useful shorthand.

But ultimately it's up to you to establish names that make sense.
Atomic design is a methodology for crafting effective design systems

✎ I Have No Idea What The Hell I Am Doing http://bradfrost.com/blog/post/i-have-no-idea-what-the-hell-i-am-doing
And here's the transcript: Thank you. How's it going New York? It's good to be back. Like Oliver said, my name is Brad Frost, and I have absolutely no idea what the hell I am doing. Thank you Dave Rupert for coming up with this beautiful title slide for me inadvertently.
