Stuff & Nonsense. Website designers in North Wales

Down under and fashionably flexible

It’s only three weeks until I’ll be flying down under to Australia to escape the British winter. While I’m there I’m hosting four Fashionably Flexible Responsive Web Design workshops — one in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

  • Perth: February 14th
  • Melbourne: February 17th
  • Sydney: February 24th
  • Brisbane: February 28th

This Fashionably Flexible Responsive Web Design workshop’s completely new and I’m excited because as well as talking about hot responsive topics, I’m putting the focus of this workshop onto design. In particular we’ll cover how to make the design decisions that designers (and developers) need to make everyday in the responsive workflow:

  • Designing from the content out
  • Responsive typography
  • Content or navigation first
  • Adapting navigation
  • When to apply layout
  • Content inspired breakpoints

I’ve been evolving the format over the last few months at private events for NRK and Finn.no, both in Oslo, and if the reaction of those folks is anything to go by, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane will be a blast.

“Thank you for a great day. It really inspired our developers and we’ve just rolled out the first of our responsive pages already. If our developers get this excited every time you’re, here I think we’ll need to have you come over every other month.”

For the next few weeks, I’ll be refining the workshop’s content some more and building some brand new boilerplates for attendees to take away. I hope I’ll see you there.
