Style Guide Podcast
Episodes from various podcasts where style guides are discussed.
Design process with Samantha Warren
Big changes in web technology are forcing us all to look at what many have been saying for a while — the web design workflow that was enshrined over the last decade really doesn’t work. The creator of Style Tiles, Samantha Warren, joins Jen Simmons to talk about workflows, design processes, and how new ideas about our tools can help us all better design websites for the modern age.
Jeremy Keith on Everything Web
Jeremy Keith joins Jen to talk about Mobilewood, future-friendlying websites, responsive design techniques, digital preservation, html5 semantics, Firefox 7, and much more.
Ethan and Karen explain how a modular design process that puts content modeling and design patterns first will help you.
Starbucks considers mobile to be the first customer touchpoint. Lincoln Mongillo tells us why managing for “one web” forces them to focus on what’s important, and puts performance, accessibility, and security at the center of their design process.
Successful Product Design, pt. 4 - Atomic Design with Brad Frost
Brad discusses Atomic Design, designing systems, Pattern Lab, style guides, and why these are good practices.
Building Scalable Design Systems and Style Guides
Nathan Curtis, co-founder of EightShapes, has worked with component libraries and style guides for years. He says that when you’re thinking about all the platforms that comprise the totality of an experience, these patterns (such as a sign in a form, or elements like buttons) need to be more broadly applicable. It’s one thing to creature the structure and layout, then thread all the pieces together for a single app or web page, but when that app needs to scale across platforms, it suddenly becomes a very different animal.
Developing a Living Style Guide with CSS
The notion of being a “designer who can code” has been a prevalent topic in recent years. Delivering static PDFs and working in photoshop is seen as inefficient in some circles. Being able to create a clickable or even responsive mockup to present to developers and stakeholders can be a better way to show your intent. It’s also much easier to iterate by changing a few lines of code.
Giant Paradigm Shifts and Other Delights With Brad Frost

Style Guides, or A Thousand Special Cases
We discuss front end style guides, and how they can speed up and improve the development process for not only the front end person, but also for the back end devs, designer, and everyone else on the team. We also chat about public speaking and presentations, and how much Joel loves her slide deck from RefreshPDX.
Why Don't Style Guides Ever Work?
How to scale design as companies grow, what it takes to create consistent experiences, and how style guides never work except when they do.
