The year 2010 (MMX) is a common year that started on a Friday. In the Gregorian calendar, it is the 2010th year of the Common Era or of Anno Domini; the 10th year of the 3rd millennium and of the 21st century; and the 1st of the 2010s decade.
I used to write frequently about music. Those days of turning sounds into words have slipped by, but I still consume new music as eagerly as ever. Here, for your pleasure, are my top albums, songs, and performances of 2010.
I’d been hesitant about writing a review of my 2010, partly because it is something I’ve avoided each year, and also because I had such a brilliant and eventful twelve months that I hate the idea of appearing arrogant or self-indulgent.
Back in early November, I was fortunate enough to present at the second HD Live event in glorious Hull.
Tis the season of good will and gifts. In this spirit, we welcome back the hugely advent-ageous 24 Ways for a sixth year of unmissable articles from an assortment of fine web pros. Erm, and myself.

It was my pleasure to be Dan Benjamin’s guest on The Pipeline earlier today.
A couple of weeks ago I went to Belfast and back. It was a tale of trains, planes, boats and automobiles, terrible weather, and a truly inspiring conference.

The folks 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.

Last week I ran a workshop for twenty-seven people at dConstruct, entitled Defining A Flexible Process. It was a real honour to be invited to put this together by my friends at Clearleft, and to once again visit that odd place they call Brighton.
Every web designer harbours tales of frustration, limitation and despair.
Last week, I announced New Adventures in Web Design, a unique and affordable web event that will take place in Nottingham.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of presenting at the first DIBI conference, held at the incredible Sage Gateshead.

I’ll soon be heading to San Francisco for the second EECI conference. For those of you that may have missed the many reasons to attend, here’s an overview.

This is the second of several excerpts from The Process Toolbox that I presented at the 5th @Media conference.
Last year, I presented The Process Toolbox at the 5th @Media conference at London’s South Bank Centre. Over the course of fifty minutes I detailed a number of methods that can ensure a project runs smoothly.
Some three and a half years since I co-founded Erskine Design, I have — after much deliberation — decided to leave the agency in pursuit of new challenges.
For two years—and with much embarrassment, I have been apologising for my undesigned blog. Well, no more shall I blush.
