I’ve been building websites under the Kelly Creative Tech brand since 2008. For most of that time, I used one version or another of a custom Content Management System (CMS) that my brother Issac and I built. Building our own CMS was an exciting challenge, and in many ways was the catalyst for both of our careers.
I've been spending most of my time over the last couple of years building Design Systems and CSS frameworks as part of the amazing team at Lincoln Loop, working on projects for Mozilla, Wharton Interactive, and others. This week, I had a chance to write a post on the Lincoln Loop blog exploring some real-world problem-solving with modern CSS. Give it a read:

If you're interested in a good starting point for Search Engine Optimization, I wrote about that a couple of years ago and it's all still relevant today. The bottom line is that we write our code, and the software that you'll use to create new content, for optimal search engine findability. I don't typically make a big fuss over this, as I'm simply following industry-standard best practices. Technically well-formatted code is the minimum starting point for a good website.
