Episode 309 is a linkshow. James and Per discuss two articles that have grabbed their attention – we feature articles about container queries being available to use in all major browsers and how design thinking was supposed to fix the world. Where did it go wrong?
Article one is… Container queries land in stable browsers by Una Kravets. “Container queries are especially handy for responsive design and reusable components. For example, enabling a card component that can lay out in one way when placed in a sidebar, and in a different configuration within a product grid.”
Our second featured article is… Design thinking was supposed to fix the world. Where did it go wrong? by Rebecca Ackermann. “Key to design thinking’s spread was its replicable aesthetic, represented by the Post-it note: a humble square that anyone can use in infinite ways. Not too precious, not too permanent,
the ubiquitous Post-it promises a fast-moving, cooperative, egalitarian process for getting things done.”
