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.
It seems a lot of dedication to responsiveness has been given to images and with typography ignored some what. 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 […]
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.
I was having a bit of a rant with two of my colleagues Sven and Ben at Digital Science about design debates and trends. That prompted me to write a 500 word email about flat design and other trends to .net magazine, a few hours later I received a positive reply telling me that it was a good idea and should submit it as an article, which I did and now its in their October Issue or read the article directly on Creative Bloq.
You can’t imagine how happy this made me
