Ambient, from Four51. Ambient was created at Four51 in Early 2015 by Ken Buras.Ambient is my vision for the design of layout methodology.
- Visual Code Design System
You are here: Ambient.
Sometimes I have layout that plays well with a traditional grid paradigm but sometimes I need more. This can mean learning grid classes for structure with floats, off-set columns and media queries. I liked reusing classes for design but I became frustrated with classes for structure that were not very clear.
An open-sourced framework
I wanted to build an open-sourced framework. A lightweight & modular HTML5 layout methodology. The CSS should make use of HTML5 (no classes), and provide layout for both portrait & landscape orientations.
So, I created Ambient.
