In Critical Defense of Frontend Development - Jens Oliver Meiert

Hear hear! This great article about the craft of Frontend Development by Jens starts with a bang: Frontend development is a field that’s not unfamiliar with being misunderstood, and its value being underestimated or missed Oh yes. At first, FE was seen as some variation of Desktop Publishing. "Real" designers would ponder about the (visual)…


Painting With The Web - Matthias Ott

This. This. This. This is what initially brought me to the early web; the improvisation, the bugs, the happy accidents the intersection of exciting new technology, not yet understood, and the excitement of actually seeing in the browser directly if what I tweaked in the html gibberish works or not… This naive playfulness matured, of…


Lateral Thinking With Withered Technology - Matthias Ott

How Nintendo won the world and what this may have to do with a sane approach to building web experiences…


Gotan - The Tango Doll

Orange rubber figure, ca 15cm, front

"You know when you've been Tango'd" Mitte der 90er Jahre letzten Jahrhunderts tauchten auf MTV diese schrägen Werbespots auf und ich weiss nicht mehr über welche Kanäle, aber ich glaube, das war einer der ersten meiner Einkäufe "übers Internet" - eine original "Tango"-Doll, die seit ca 1998 bei mir wohnt.

How to Build an Atomic Bomb - Mike Monteiro @ Beyond Tellerrand Düsseldorf 2018

view this directly on vimeo Wow. It was on the historical date of May 8th, that Mike Monteiro held this intense talk, reminding each and everyone who cared to listen of the conseqences and the possible impacts of the "I'm only doing my job here" mentality. This talk gave me several goose bumps, having seen…


The Laws of UX

A very neat collection of (web) design principles , such as "Jacob's Law": "Users spend most of their time on other sites. This means that users prefer your site to work the same way as all the other sites they already know." Laws of UX is a collection of the key maxims that designers must…


Matthias Ott: Saving your web workflows with prototyping

Oh, Matthias did it again: Publishing one of his thorough articles on the challenges of designing/working with "the web". It is again one of those articles that I'd wished to have written myself, because it echoes my thoughts (and my frustration) about the unfitting ways I am forced to work in when I'm doing client…


Where Does The Design Agency Go From Here? - Paul Woods/Edo van Dijk

(…) Design is no longer just about design. Design doesn’t mean making visual solutions. Digital doesn’t mean being a web monkey, producing only websites and apps. Such developments as the rise of artificial intelligence, screenless design and accessibility to great website-building tools like Squarespace mean that the agency that interprets digital design as “making websites…


On Design Tools and Processes - Viljami Salminen

For the past year(s) I’ve been chasing for answers. Looking for new tools, thinking about design processes and figuring out what design really means to me. At times I’ve felt so disconnected with our pro­cesses that I’ve wondered if my career choice was right. For a field rooted in the fine arts this period of…


Going rogue - Jeremy Keith

now we’re into slippery slopes and glass houses. One person might draw the line at creating a Muslim registry. Someone else might draw the line at including any kind of invasive tracking script on a website. Someone else again might decide that the line is crossed by including Google Analytics. It’s moral relativism all the…


Resilient Webdesign - Jeremy Keith

Jeremy Keith has published a new book, and anyone who's enjoyed one of his recent talks about the build-in robustness of the core web technologies, and how we managed to cripple it by designing with the wrong focus, might want to read this. I certainly do, this is very much up my alley. With a…
