Tonight's Skillswap turns to visual design...with Skillswap goes Pretty.
We'll be following the same format as the previous events, with two talks from Clearleft's Paul Annett and the internet's very own Elliot Jay Stocks.
Once again, the event is being kindly supported by Madgex, which means not only is it totally free, but you might also get yourself a couple of drinks thrown in too. Cheers guys!
Oooh, that's clever! (unnatural experiments in web design)
Led by Paul Annett
Find inspiration for innovation. See technological quirks as opportunities. Try something previously unheard of with your site design. Laugh in the face of convention. Use and abuse CSS in ways never before imagined. Get away with it. And if it doesn't work, try something else instead.
I care because you do
Led by Elliot Jay Stocks
Crushed into submission by the weight of impending deadlines, battered and bruised by insane client demands, and reduced to a quivering mess by technical problems, how does the web designer inject care, passion, and polish into a project? When and how is it possible to add that extra layer of TLC when all you want to do is get it finished? Complementing Paul Annett's talk on web design niceties, Elliot Jay Stocks looks at the motivation behind great design, and attempts to inspire by removing the client from the picture and focus on the importance of design evolution.
Sorry people, all the tickets for this event have been gobbled up. We may have one or two cancellations, so if you're still keen on coming email james [at] clearleft.com and we'll contact you nearer the time to let you know if places have become available. This will be on a first come, first-served basis.
