FABW masterclasses Australia 2009

As the title suggests, we’re spreading our wings and taking our For A Beautiful Web Visual Web Design Masterclass to Australia this April, with dates in Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney.

In conjunction with our good friends at Web Directions, I will be presenting our one-day Visual Web Design Masterclass in Melbourne on Monday 20th April, Canberra on Wednesday 22nd and finally in Sydney on Friday 24th as part of the Web Directions South Roadshow. These will be the only chances to attend this masterclass in Australia this year, so be there or be a strange furry animal with no relations in the rest of the world. From the web site:

Sometimes, in all the excitement about AJAX, APIs, frameworks and other technical whizz-bangs, talk about visual design on the web gets lost. This one day masterclass by the the author of Transcending CSS, Andy Clarke, will inspire you to make the best design possible for the web, and show you how to discover new ideas and new ways of working with CSS and standards based markup.

If you work as a web designer, a print designer who wants to know what makes the web special or you are a technical person who is keen to learn more about how visual designers think and work, this workshop will take you to the next level and beyond. Not only will you brush up your skills, it will also inspire new designs, improve layouts with grid-based techniques, improve readability by using better typography and most importantly how to make your website stand out from all the others.

What will you learn?

By the end of the day you will be able to:

  • Improve your layouts with inspired grid-based techniques
  • Improve readability through better and classic typography techniques
  • Use small details to big effect

Who is this workshop for?

Web designers, print designes who wants to know what makes the web special, or technical people keen to learn more about how visual designers think and work will all take a wealth of learning from this very full day.

All workshops are full day (9.00am to 5.00pm) and include catered morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch as well as any materials for only $550.00. If you have attended a previous Web Directions conference or workshop, there is also a loyalty discount of $100.00 off. You can't say fairer than that.

The feedback we received from our first Visual Web Design Masterclass in London in December was fantastic and I'm sure that our Australian dates will be no different. If you're in Australia or any nearby continents in April, I'd love to see you there. Book now, you know you want to.


I’m available for hire to consult on and design products and websites. Based in North Wales, I travel regularly to work with clients world-wide.

Available from January 2020
