London Web meet-up

We are digital architects....part 2

I did another talk, this time at the London Web meet-up. It was the same talk at FOWD but with some extra info on things I had discovered since (CH & EX units for CSS).

The session focused on really making you think as a designer: How has language caused design block? What about the debate on things like skeuomorphic versus flat design? And what are the misconceptions about agile and self-imposed limitations of visual vocabulary?

By looking at practical ways to solve these issues, I discussed how we can embrace the scary and constant uncertainty of the beautiful journey we call the design process. You can see the video here and the slides here.

I am currently at Future of Web design Conference and was fortunate enough to attended a workshop with Jason Pamental called From Sharpie to Sublime: A Responsive Design Intensive. It really opened my eyes to a lot of things, especially the unknown-unknowns such as simple best practice like wrapping an image tag with a figure tag and why we should be using EM’s and not PX unit measurements as newer mobile browsers display based on the pixel density rather than the actual screen width thus breaking our websites. Highly recommended workshop.

Design is sometimes subjective but we do have some rules that we can abide by; for example with body copy we should never have more than 100 characters per line as readers would find it harder […]

Future of Web Design 2014

I'll be speaking next year!!!

December 5th 2013 - Talks

It has been an amazing couple of months. Firstly getting my work published in .netmagazine, then seeing it put posted on creativebloq and finally getting invited to speak at Future of Web Design next year. The talk I’ll be giving is titled “We are Digital Architects: Evolving our design language for the web” and will involve some of my ideas about the creative process and how we can embrace it as a journey of discovery, changing out thought process and language along the way.

Can’t wait :)
