“The Modern Designer’s Canvas”

Since designers began working on the web, we’ve followed processes and practices that were created decades earlier. In recent years, responsive design has shown us that we need to work differently—to find new ways to create designs for the modern web. But designers have struggled to find new ways to work and new tools to work with. Discover how distilling a design into its ‘atmosphere’ of color, typography, and texture helps create designs that are layout independent. Learn how to create a responsive typographic design and how to base CSS3 media queries on content rather than device pixels.

The tools, methods and processes that web designers have used to communicate their designs to clients have been rendered largely ineffective by the rise of mobile and responsive design.

“Bringing A Knife To A Gunfight”

In the mid-nineties, when designers started making their mark on the web, they did it with software tools and processes that they’d brought with them from print. But the web’s a different place now than it was ten, five, even two years ago; the tools and processes we’ve relied on for years are no longer capable of properly designing today’s flexible, responsive web. In this session, find new ways to design that better serve the needs of today’s responsive web, and investigate better, alternative tools and approaches to design. Learn too how new tools and approaches can improve communication between designers and developers and our clients.

“Smoke Gets In Your Eyes”

Animation on the web has traditionally been low-fidelity and shares much common ground with the work of early animators. Web animations have always been the domain of Flash because equivalents couldn’t easily be created using open standards. That is until now, with ever increasing support for CSS3 Animations. Learn about the latest CSS animation techniques and how to create effective, accessible fallbacks for all browsers, including those with limited capabilities.

So in thirty short minutes, Andy Clarke investigates ways to stretch time using visual design to make more compelling web pages that keep people thinking ’ for longer.

Take an uncompromising look at how to make the most from modern design tools and browsers, up-to-date techniques and processes. In this practical, design-focused talk, Andy will discuss the “how” as well as the “why,” and challenge your preconceptions to help you make better work for the web. Learn the most modern, forward-moving, and sometimes experimental CSS techniques, and why a forward looking approach to CSS will pay real dividends.
