When print design can lay claim to a history stretching as far back as the middle ages, perhaps it's no surprise that we have taken its methods and applied them to the web. Yet as this relatively new medium reaches the same level of ubiquity as paper, and with it's underlying technologies adapting to meet this need, so the design process needs to mature too. In this session Paul will review our existing methods, and investigate which aspects will require change if we are to design for the web as a medium in its own right.
What will you learn from my talk? That the average website is golden vessel for liquid poo. That you design a toddler's play table every time you use a new platform for content. That kittens go through shredders feet first when you write a sloppy error message. That inverted pyramids are your new best friends. But mostly that Content is a murderous robot, comprised of brightly coloured ninjas.
