About Mina Markham

About me
You may know me from that time I created the first (and currently only) design system for a presidential campaign. Or when I helped rebuild slack.com. Or maybe you've seen me speak at any number of events. Or perhaps you read about my work in Forbes, WIRED, Fast Company, and Communication Arts.

Oh, and I make Beyoncé-themed projects such as HTTBey, Formation, and Yoncé.

Community Organizing
I currently co-organize the SF Design Systems Coalition. Previously, I founded the Dallas chapters of Girl Develop It and DFW Sass. In addition, I co-organize Front Porch, a front-end conference which prides itself on showcasing and fostering new speakers.

Conference Speaking
Since 2013 I've been giving talks at conferences around the world. My talks typically explore CSS architecture and design systems. More recently, I’ve been giving keynotes on my experiences using technology for social good. My best known talks are "Styling Hillary" and “Do The Most Good.”

Why Be a Patron

By becoming a patron, you will help me focus on finishing projects that I would be unable to fully focus on otherwise. For example, helping organize the SF Design Systems Coalition; launching a podcast with Jina Anne; more frequent writing about CSS, design systems, and art direction; and a design systems clinic. Your funds will also allow me to appear at more community / non-profit events that are unable to cover travel expenses.
