The Future of Web Design conference – high points

It’s Friday morning on the 21st May 2010, the day after I returned home from the amazing FOWD conference in London.

I got to hear just about everyone on my Must-see list except for Denise Jacobs and Brad Haynes (because I decided to see Remi Sharp’s and Paul Boag’s talks instead). But the ones I missed I will be able to catch on video when I get home (if you missed the conference, you can buy a full video coverage from FOWD).

On this early, and very beautiful morning, I will give you my roundup on the highs and lows of FOWD. Actually, only the highs, as there really were no lows – Carsonified did a truly awesome :) job on this one.

Contrast is King

This post is inspired by two tweets made by a former students at The Nordic Multimedia Academy, Maarja Jullinen.

Maarja tweeted:

“of seeing all the “10 tips to better design” articles. Why, fellow designer, can’t you write something else? I’ll read it, I promise!”

“Don’t promise me no tips unless it’s an actual tutorial. While I realize ‘breaking it down’ is a marvelous idea, it does make my eyes bleed.”
