Process

Build light and clean. Utilize SCSS and BEM methodology for clean, legible styling. Reference images via <source srcset> for both responsiveness as well as modern image formats such as WebP with tradition formats as a fallback. Use SVG and/or CSS for all iconography, logos, and visual shapes. Avoid bloated code by attempting to meet needs with plain javascript rather than libraries when applicable.
