The Talks

Meet the BBC VR Barriers Project - Jamie Knight

Responsive Web Design is dead. Long live Intrinsic Web Design - Josh Tumath from BBC Core Services, @joshtumath

Josh is a front-end Web developer in D+E’s new Core Services department. He is a Web standards nerd who could easily win a pub quiz if it was about CSS properties or Disney theme parks. He’d come last if it was about anything else.

But now, as we’ve started to create componentised design systems where components could appear anywhere, designers and developers are crying out for ‘container queries’. A new movement of Intrinsic Web Design is emerging which can do just that and more! We’re just scratching the surface of what’s now possible with the newest features of CSS.
