Since such overhauls are relatively infrequent and set the stage for a web site for years to come, they are rare and vital opportunities to step back to basics. What should the site be? What should it express? Who is it for and what should it do for them?
MindBody is a web-based management system widely used by yoga studios. Using MindBody’s SOAP-based API, eeMindBody provides an easy way for a studio’s ExpressionEngine web site to access its MindBody data.
"Pika, a future without webpack.":https://www.pikapkg.com/blog/pika-web-a-future-without-webpack/ Looks good, back to sanity. While I'm greatly appreciative that the mass of work involved with compiling stuff gives us hot-loading on the client end and components on the dev end, hopefully the big process that makes that possible will be reduced.

It’s the competing considerations themselves that coalesce to form the design.
ow that the site’s wireframes have been generated during the architecture process, we turn them into mock-ups using visual elements such as a logo and an icon set; visual conventions such as a color scheme and a typeface collection; and visual rules such as a grid layout. Design appears in Jesse James Garrett’s useful Elements of User Experience diagram as the top level, labelled Visual Design.
As well as these elements, conventions and rules, the design must take into account a number of considerations that may initially appear to conflict until, with work, the tensions among them coalesce to actually form the design.
