  • Happy New Year

    Welcome to 2004. I’ve been trying to give myself as big a break as possible from blogging and computers generally, but I’ve finally succumbed. I’m not one for resolutions, but something I’ve promised myself is more photos.

  • Happy New Year

    Welcome all to 2003. Hope you’re all recovering from the excesses of Tuesday night! I’ve been a bit quiet recently, taking a break from all things computery, but normal service will now be resumed (unlike the poor unfortunate West Pier).

  • No Butt, don’t shoot !

    England through, Argentina out. Smashing. In the Guardian on Brazil’s 5–2 mauling of Costa Rica: “do not under any circumstances miss the highlights of this match tonight. It’s better than sex. Well, it’s certainly better than any sex I’ve…

  • OS X newbie alert

    My new iBook arrived just in time for the Easter break. This is not only the first time I’ve owned a Mac but also the first time I’ve used one for more than about a minute.

  • Geotagged blogs on Multimap

    For the past month Multimap has been populating the database with geotagged blogs and now has nearly 4,000 mapped.

  • More on fixed widths

    Fixed versus liquid design is an emotive debate. Liquid layout seems more intuitive, appropriate and elegant but is not without issues. However many concerns can be addressed with little or no compromise.

  • Top Tunes 2018

    Back after a decidedly long hiatus, here’s a compilation of favourite songs I bought this year, and a damn fine year it was too.

    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.

  • All you need to know about hyphenation in CSS

    Automatic hyphenation on the web has been possible since 2011 and is now broadly supported. There is however far more control available to designers than just turning on hyphens.

  • Top ten tips for web typography

  • Back soon

    I’m off mountain biking for a week. In the meantime I’ve added an archive to Clagnut and made some fundamental changes to the RSS feed, discovering FeedDemon along the way.

  • Blogmarks

    Clagnut posts have been getting longer and less frequent of late, which means a bunch of sites are going noticed but unreported. So it was time to emulate the trend of a rolling list of links – hence the creation of blogmarks.

  • A new year, a new design

    To my surprise, Clagnut.com was last redesigned in September 2008. Well, it’s all change, with a new redesign launched today. It’s been created from the typography outwards, responsive from the beginning and elegant on huge as well as tiny screens.

  • Don’t break the back button!

  • Line breaks in tooltips

    So I was perusing the Guardian’s World Cup fixtures guide and noticed a little feature I’d never seen before: line breaks in tooltips. Also, a brief note on information design for events changing over time (goals being scored for example).

    Last Sunday I completed the inaugural Brighton marathon. It was a great day, for a good cause.

  • Conference diversity from an organiser’s perspective

    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.

  • Centering text on the longest line

    The Web Typography project continues to proceed, albeit at a glacial pace. One of the reasons for the slow progress is guidelines such as this: “verse quotations should be centered on the longest line”.

  • Lists, lists & more lists

    A discussion of the recent prevalence and possible overuse of heavily styled lists for such elements as site navigation and overall blog structure.

  • I’m back

    And there are photos. And a list of what’s been happening: Odeon crapsters, AMG retrograde, per-site stylesheets, disabling IE6 imagebar, Mozilla security flaw, Malarkey forms, Colly links, Gmail whitelist, XHTML to RSS and fantasy footie.

  • UK Museums on the Web 2012

    UK Museums on the Web is a one day conference organised by the Museums Computer Group. Representatives from museums and other organisations in the sector shared their experiences over the past year and beyond. These are my notes from the day.
