Clearleft we know we have a responsibility to the industry to help redress the gender balance, and that means putting together diverse line-ups at our conferences. This is much easier said than done, but difficult doesn’t mean impossible.

I’m writing a book on Web Typography which I’m hoping to crowdfund on Kickstarter. It’ll be a handbook for designing beautiful and effective typography in modern websites, and I hope it’ll be available in time for Ampersand conference this year.
The d.Construct conference in Brighton is approaching rapidly (don’t I just know it; so much to do, so little time) and many attendees are coming down on the Thursday. As such, attendees are looking for places and people to meet on Thursday evening.
I’ll expand on this post over the next few days – there’s so much going on here, all the time, that there’s barely a chance to breathe let alone put a coherent post together so this will just be bits and pieces when I get a chance.
So I’m off to @media for the rest of this week – can’t wait! And in other news I have an article in this month’s Practical Web Design magazine.

I want to design a new way for visual designers to find fonts which specifically suit their needs and the needs of their clients. This means approaching things by way of a user-centred design process. And I need your help.
