Chatting with Kent Web Host

We got an email through to Clearleft from someone pointing out a certain similarity between our website: http://www.flickr.com/photos/adactio/8719586981/ ...and the website for a company called Kent Web Host: http://www.flickr.com/photos/adactio/8720710854/ Hmmm ...perhaps Clearleft were unconsciously influenced by Kent Web Host! Just to set the record straight, I gave them a call.

Unraveling the Mysteries of Inspiration | Veerle Pieters | New Adventures In Web Design conference | Nottingham | 20th January 2011

Trying to define or explain inspiration is really difficult. Inspiration is an essential phase in our design process as it is where the creation is ignited. How can inspiration be triggered? Are there ways to find out how inspiration works? How can we break a creativity block? There might not be black and white answers to these questions, but by sharing some analyses with practical examples we might find inspiration easier.

Conversation: the power of tinkering

Today in our Conversation Corner By Design introduces you to John Seely Brown, the co-author [with Douglas Thomas], of A New Culture of Learning: Cultivating the Imagination for a World of Constant Change. In this new book John Seely Brown is particularly interested in the idea of TINKERING. He suggests one of the best 'tinkering' models is the architectural studio - the place where students work together trying to solve each other's problems, and a mentor or master can also take part in open criticism. Find out why this is a model for us all.

Book design with Chong

Chong speaks about his approach to book design. Charles Dickens once said 'There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best parts'. While this may still ring true today, you still need to read the book to know whether it's any good. One way to attract the reader to the book is through the book design. Chong has created covers for Lloyd Jones, Peter Temple, Tim Flannery, Shane Maloney and Helen Garner. He spoke to the Book Show's Sarah L'Estrange about his role.

Jam Session: What Improvisation Can Teach Us About Design

Have you ever had a spontaneous creative triumph, perfectly in sync with your team? A passionate believer in improvisation as a design skill, Hannah’s session will talk about the importance of this technique in her own design process and what lessons can be borrowed from improvised music. From the jazz masters to the humble basement band practice, musical concepts such as timing, structure, rolls and expression have many lessons for designers creating an off-the-cuff interface. Hannah will explore how the methods of music translate for a design/development team, as well as sharing personal stories and techniques for those times when you need a bit of a jam session. http://2010.dconstruct.org/speakers/hannah-donovan Originally from Canada’s icy north, Hannah Donovan is creative director at Last.fm, where she’s worked for the last four years. Before moving to London, she designed websites for Canada’s largest youth-focused agency, working on brands such as Hershey, Heineken and Bic. Hannah also plays the cello with an orchestra and draws monsters.

Information Is Beautiful

In an age of high-speed living and info overload, visualized information has incredible potential to help us quickly understand, navigate and find meaning in a complex world. The use of infographics, data visualisations and information design is a rising trend across many disciplines: science, design, journalism and web. At the same time, daily exposure to the web is creating a incredibly design-literate population. Could this be a new language? In his session, David will share his passion for this merging of design, information, text and story to unveil some of the interesting, unexpected and sometimes magical things that happen when you visualise data, knowledge and ideas. And, admitting that his book is as full of mistakes as it is successes, he’ll also explore some of the common pitfalls, traps and FAILS that dog this young design form. Using examples from his book and blog, he’ll share thoughts on what makes a successful information visualisation and journalistic tips, especially for designers, on how to zero in on interesting data and subjects—and how designing information can expose your own biases and change your views about the world. Oh yeah! http://2010.dconstruct.org/speakers/david-mccandless David McCandless is a London-based author, data-journalist and information designer, working across print, advertising, TV and web. His design work has appeared in over forty publications internationally including The Guardian and Wired. He champions the use of data visualisations to explore new directions for journalism and to discover new stories in the seas of data surrounding us. His blog and book ‘Information Is Beautiful’ are dedicated to visualising ideas, issues, knowledge and data—all with the minimum of text.
