    I’m proud to have been part of the Web Typography panel at SxSW 2009 alongside Jon Tan, Ian Coyle, Elliot Jay Stocks & Samantha Warren. I’ve jotted down some of the topics we discussed, and some we talked about beforehand but didn’t have time for.

    So the election has been announced. This, Election Blog, and other simple choices.

    I’m presenting Wireframing in a Web 2.0 World with James Box at South by Southwest, with a warm-up Skillswap in Brighton next week. I’m also involved with Singularity, an online conference to be held in October.

  • Skillswap went typographic

    Back in January I was part of a double bill with Jon Tan, entitled Skillswap goes typographic. It went down really well so I thought I’d better tie it all together here.

  • But why, some say, the moon?

    Returning from speaking at the Web App Summit, we watched the brilliant Frost/Nixon and I was reminded of JFK’s fantastic 1962 Moon speech to Rice University.

  • Great Escape Festival day one

    The Great Escape festival is the UK’s fledgling answer to SxSW Music. It’s a 3 day event featuring 180 bands in 10 venues across Brighton with talks from industry luminaries during the day. I got a 3-day gig pass, the first evening didn’t disappoint.

  • Ten design principles of Dieter Rams

    Earlier this month, Clearleft went on a company outing to the Design Museum in London. There we spent some quality time perusing the work of the influential former Braun industrial designer, Dieter Rams. These are his ten principles for good design.

    So d.Construct is over. It all seemed to go swimmingly well and there has been a fantastic positive response from everyone who attended.

  • SxSW stream of conciousness

    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.

  • Ego charting

    Technorati recently released cool charty goodness for any keyword search, and what’s more you can post the graphs right into your blog. And then there’s egoSurf.

  • British Sea Power

    It was hot, it was sweaty and it absolutely bloody rocked. Jeremy, Jessica and I were privileged to be among the 150 folks squeezed into Brighton’s Freebutt to see British Sea Power perform one of their famous intimate gigs.

    It’s Sunday and it finally feels like I’ve caught up sleep and got over jet lag, thus enabling me to attempt a personal wrap up of my South by Southwest.

  • A free font success story

    A free font has made it into MyFonts’s top ten list of best selling typefaces. There’s a lesson there somewhere.

    Here’s the track listing to my annual compilation. As ever, titled as ‘The Best Songs I Bought In 2010 Ever’.

  • Ajax training workshop

    Following on from the great response we had to d.Construct, Clearleft is proud to be putting on an Ajax training course early next year.

  • SxSW wrap up

    Yes I know I’ve been back for nearly a week, which means you’ll be totally fed up with SxSW posts, so this one might just be for my benefit.

  • VE Day and the US D-Day Museum

    Today is the 60th anniversary of VE Day, yet World War II was not completely over until four months later and VJ Day. This reminded me of my trip to New Orleans earlier this year where my good friend Dave took me to the National D-Day Museum.

  • Top Tunes 2005

    Thought I’d better sneak this one in before the end of January. Here’s the track listing to my annual compilation, this year cleverly titled as ‘The Best Songs I Bought In 2005 Ever’. Turns out it was a surprisingly good year.

  • Fontdeck is go!

    I’m extremely proud to say that two weeks ago Fontdeck opened its doors to the type-loving public. It’s been a long time in coming – too long I’d admit – but Fontdeck is now live and I’m hugely excited about what’s to come.

  • Taking on the Tour

    Two remarkable men attempt to ride the Tour course in the same number of days as the race itself. And Jeff’s book is five years old.

  • TypeCon 2010

    TypeCon2010 in Los Angeles was my first typography conference. It felt good. I was made welcome, made new friends, renewed old acquaintances and learned a lot.

  • @media 2007

    The media conference this year was as good as ever. Even the queues for coffee and food were quicker this year. I’ve jotted down a few titbits gleaned from the sessions I attended.
