During my talks and subsequent conversation, I often mention numerous books that have influenced my thinking. As a result, I’m getting an increasing number of emails and tweets asking for a full list. So, to deal with that, I’ve pulled together the following list.
Back in early November, I was fortunate enough to present at the second HD Live event in glorious Hull. It was a fantastic day, with great presentations from folks like Brendan Dawes, Sarah Parmenter, Peter Barron (Google), Matt Brown (BERG) and others.
The folks down under at Campaign Monitor approached me and a number of other designers earlier this year with a special project in mind. The results finally launched last week, delivering a number of free templates for anyone to use.
Whilst my days are mostly spent chained to the desk, my blog is out there throwing it about. Never more so than the last few weeks, now that it’s wearing all this new-fangled responsive design stuff under its drawers. Well, I think it’s “adaptive”, not truly responsive, but anyway.
For two years—and with much embarrassment, I have been apologising for my undesigned blog. Well, no more shall I blush. To mark this fourth redesign and rebuild, I’ve decided to detail my inspiration, ideas, processes, type and design choices—and hopefully explain what this miscellany thing is all about.
Approximately five minutes before we finished for Christmas and ran to the pub, we launched something we’ve been working on for over five months whenever we could - the new Erskine Design website - lets call it version 2.
OK. Lets start this post about my book Beginning CSS Web Development with one of my favourite reviews.
Erskine’s chief carrot-topped design wizard Greg Wood has just relaunched his personal website - www.greg-wood.co.uk - and I love it. Peppered with his own idiosyncratic robot doodles and “...a deliciously organized foray into the abnormalities and oddities of [his] grey matter.”
As a rule, I am against forced acronyms. Take my least favourite - POSH. POSH is just awful.
