  1. Designing for Performance: Can We Have it All?

    A List Apart: On Air — Conversations that bring our community together.

    Everyone wants sites that are responsive, beautiful, and fast. Can we have it all? Or do we need to make tradeoffs? And whose job is performance anyway?

    • Auditing an existing site’s performance
    • Setting performance budgets  
    • Prioritizing and making design decisions 
    • Getting clients and colleagues on board

    Format 30 minutes of panelist conversation 30 minutes of Q&A

  2. Unfinished Business 73: We’ve reached peak burrito

    A weekly discussion show about the business end, the sharp end of web, design and creative industries.

    Jeremy Keith joins me on this, episode 73 of Unfinished Business. Although I try to steer clean of provoking him by not talking about moon landings, we disagree about just about everything else. Fish tacos, things that scientists haven’t done that I think they should’ve and what makes advertising to fascinating to me and hateful to him. It’s a lively show. There are sparks. I think you’ll like it.

  4. Chatting with Kent Web Host

    We got an email through to Clearleft from someone pointing out a certain similarity between our website:

    …and the website for a company called Kent Web Host:

    Hmmm …perhaps Clearleft were unconsciously influenced by Kent Web Host!

    Just to set the record straight, I gave them a call.

  5. The Spirit Of The Web by Jeremy Keith

    This talk was given at the first Smashing Conference 2012 in Freiburg. Here is the talk description:

    With the explosion of Web-enabled devices of all shapes and sizes, the practice of Web design and development seems more complex than ever. But if we can learn to see below this overwhelming surface to the underlying Web beneath, we can learn to make sites not for specific devices but for the people using them. This talk will demonstrate how tried and tested principles like progressive enhancement are more important than ever. By embracing the spirit of the Web, you can ensure that your websites are backwards-compatible and future-friendly.

  8. Mark Boulton — Designing grid systems

    Grid sys tems have been used in print design, archi tec ture and inte rior design for gen­er a tions. Now, on the web, the same rules of grid sys tem com po si tion and usage no longer apply. Content is viewed in many ways; from RSS feeds to email. Content is viewed on many devices; from mobile phones to lap tops. Users can manip u late the browser, they can remove con tent, resize the can vas, resize the type faces. A designer is no longer in con trol of this pre sen ta tion. So where do grid sys tems fit in to all that?
