Hallway Hangout: Intrinsic Design

Join contributors on February 8th at 15:00 UTC to discuss solving design problems using Intrinsic design and discuss ways to solve adjacent problems, where more granular controls and tools are needed. 

Meet agency developers and designers and discuss informally the in and outs of creating layouts with intrinsic design and beyond.

  • What “intrinsic” design is.
  • How intrinsic design compares to responsive design and where they overlap.
  • Designing at the atomic (i.e., blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor.

  • Alternatives to responsive design controls that you can use to solve today’s issues.
  • Common use cases that are not well handed by the current design tools.
  • Existing or upcoming CSSCSS CSS is an acronym for cascading style sheets. This is what controls the design or look and feel of a site. features that would make laying out a page easier.
  • Fluid font sizing and fluid spacing.
  • Grid layout support has been available since WordPress 6.3 and how to enable it.
