Unraveling the Mysteries of Inspiration | Veerle Pieters | New Adventures In Web Design conference | Nottingham | 20th January 2011
Trying to define or explain inspiration is really difficult. Inspiration is an essential phase in our design process as it is where the creation is ignited. How can inspiration be triggered? Are there ways to find out how inspiration works? How can we break a creativity block? There might not be black and white answers to these questions, but by sharing some analyses with practical examples we might find inspiration easier.
Being a CSS expert is about more than just memorizing selectors. It’s also about working to improve the maintainability and efficiency of your style sheets, planning for the future, and mastering your workflow. This session will look at pushing the limits of CSS to create stunning interfaces using clean, meaningful markup. We’ll also look at CSS 3 and at what the future of Web design could look like when CSS 3 finally becomes mainstream.

5by5 - The Big Web Show #22: Dan Cederholm
This week we were joined by Mat “Wilto” Marquis. He’s now a full timer at Filament group in Boston who, while doing client work (like The Boston Globe, have you heard of it?), have done some amazing open source work for the modern web (e.g. major contributions to jQuery UI and Mobile). Mat chair’s the Responsive Images Community Group and has been front in center in the work (or shall we say, #hotdrama) toward dealing with responsive images in web design. We talk about (roughly in order):
- Mike Evans: 23 and 1/2 hours: What is the single best thing we can do for our health?
- RWD Calc
- Coda 2
Q & A
What up with Filament’s Enhance.js (new beterness coming!) Can we as authors just choose not to use features we don’t like? I* s the RICG (the so-called “picture pushing club”) lazy? (Hint: no. Here’s a link to a recent compromise).
- Should designers now be making all sites responsive? And thus prices going up?
- How does a business like Wade’s Tree Service get decent SEO and avoid shady over-promising services?
- Can we improve the aesthetics of websites during the loading process? What up with Opera Mini?
- What is / should we always be using Progressive JPGs?
- Resources for staying on top of responsive web design: @RWD, @brad_frost
What’s the best way to handle responsive images? There’s been a lot of discussion flying around over the last many months, big debates and fast changes… where have we landed? What’s coming in the future? Responsive Images Community Group chair Mat Marquis joins Jen Simmons to sort it all out.
