Combining :checked and flexbox to create a CSS toggle feature.

24th April 2015

I wrote a post a while ago when I learnt how to use the :checked pseudo class to build a toggle feature. I was pretty excited because I didn’t have to use any JavaScript to build it. This week, I have created another toggle feature, still using CSS only, which is more exciting than the first.

I’ve been getting a little excited about Flexbox recently, so two weeks ago I wrote an introduction to it. Since then, I’ve used Flexbox to solve a problem that I used to see a lot.

Communication for America

31st January 2014

At Clearleft, we occasionally work with clients right here in Brighton, but that’s the exception. More often than not, the clients are based in London, or somewhere else in the UK. In the case of Code for America, they’re based in San Francisco—that’s eight or nine timezones away (depending on the time of year).

Pattern portfolios are a great way to deliver modular, flexible and responsive design systems. They also offer huge benefits to both clients and technical partners when compared to traditional page-by-page static page template deliverables.

Responsive Design on a Budget

16th January 2013

Performance considerations in responsive design should be a holistic part of the shaping of a site, right from the initial UX work. Using the concept of a ‘size budget’ can help avoid making it just a development issue that gets tacked on at the end.
