Design, Prototype, and Style in Browser

This week, Brad Frost released a blog post about The Principles of Adaptive Design, and his principles on creating the responsive web. He makes the apt analogy that although the core pieces of responsive web design (fluid grids, flexible media, and media queries) are extremely important, they are but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to creating the amazing experiences we all want across the web.

5 steps to a successful company retreat

Four Kitchens recently hosted our company retreat here in Austin, Texas and it was a blast! The last time the whole team was in one spot was our holiday party last December. At the time we were 17 employees — 16 located in Austin and one in California. In 2014, we’ve grown to 22 employees — now spanning four time zones and two continents — so it was a momentous occasion to have all of us in town for the entirety of DrupalCon and the retreat. Memories abound!

Here’s how we made it an event to remember and how you can too!
