Fashionably flexible responsive web design workshops — Australia 2012

There’s been much written about responsive design, but so much of it has focussed on aspects of technical implementation rather than about the design decisions that responsive design demands. So next February (2012), I’ll be travelling down-under to Australia to host four, yes four, ‘Fashionably flexible responsive web design’ workshops.

Once again, I’m partnering with my good friends from Web Directions to tour:

Who better to go beyond HTML5 markup than John Allsopp? John will be “taking you beyond the header and footer, to focus on powerful, but easy to use features of HTML5”

Fashionably flexible responsive web design workshops

Responsive design has made designing flexible websites fashionable again, but there’s more to being fashionably flexible than technology or using CSS3 media queries.

So this unique, hands-on, workshop — hosted by Andy Clarke, designer, author and speaker — puts the design back into responsive design. Andy will teach you how to design from the ‘content out’, instead of from the ‘canvas in’.

He’ll demonstrate how to separate design from layout and if you work with designs made in Photoshop, he’ll show how to deconstruct a design into its components (colour, texture and typography) before reassembling it for a fluid continuum of devices from, mobile phones to desktops and everything in between.

If you’re a web designer or developer, you’ll learn how to:


In the morning, Andy will demonstrate:

Working in groups, in sketchbooks and in Photoshop, you’ll put the lessons you’ve learned into practice.

In the afternoon, Andy will explain how to:

You’ll also get the chance to ask questions and swap ideas with like-minded designers and developers.

I’m really excited about hosting these workshops and to going back to Australia. Tickets are on sale now and I really hope I’ll see you there.


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
