Talk: Building a [Not So] Simple Navigation System

As part of a complete redesign, we developed our navigation menus from scratch and ran in to quite a few challenges along the way.

I’ve been working on a major redesign at work and even with the help of Foundation doing a lot of the heavy lifting, there’s still a lot of challenging and often hacky fixes that go in to custom frontend development. It’s hard, but if you prioritize some core requirements like mobile-first, accessibility, and properly structured markup, a lot of the tricky stuff will fall in to place.
