With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

A session at Future of Web Design 2011

Wednesday 18th May, 2011

2:25pm to 3:05pm (GMT)

Recent developments in web technologies like HTML5 and CSS3 have allowed us to build a richer web, full of advanced visual treatments like web fonts, animations, transformations, and drop-shadows. But have we got carried away with our new toys? Just because we can use a drop-shadow doesn’t mean we have to. In this new and often controversial talk, Elliot looks at solid design principles that will turn a good website into a great website, examines the scenarios where it’s better to stay away from unnecessary visual effects, and attempts to find the sweet spot in between the two extremes. “With great power comes great responsibility, ” said Uncle Ben, and Spidey hadn’t even used border-radius!
