The Clientside podcast is a regular discussion show hosted by digital agency founder and best-selling author Andrew Armitage. Each episode offers insights and discussion for those working “clientside” to expand their knowledge of digital marketing, strengthening the impact they can have in their job roles.


The Clientside Podcast was created by Andrew because he wanted to capture some of the conversations he found himself having with clients on an almost daily basis. It’s clear that not every in-house marketer has the same opportunities to develop their skills, but being surrounded by fast-paced change makes it more important than ever to stay on top of new trends and technology in digital marketing.


If you’d like to appear as a guest on the show, we’d love to hear from you. Please send an email to hello@theclientside.show with details of a topic you’d love to talk about and the benefits that our audience would get from it.

    Design systems for websites with Dan Donald of Zero Height

    Design systems for websites with Dan Donald of Zero Height

    With a diverse career from full-stack dev to design system product owner working for large and small organisations and spell as a freelancer, Dan has straddled the worlds of design and development for most of his working life. Design systems have been a way of bringing these experiences together along with running teams, communication and collaboration.


    In this episode we talk about what a Design System is and how it adds value to a website - not just during the build but as the site grows and scales over time. I ask Dan about who should own and lead on the design system and we talk about some of the challenges around building and implementing a design system.
