Tim Van Damme: Designing on Solid Foundations

Tim Van Damme, New Adventures, January 2011

What is design? Polishing squares until they're circles? Getting your website in as many CSS galleries as possible? No. There's more to it than that, and we need to think deeper about the foundations for our work. Design benefits from preparation, making things easier, and anticipating what comes next. In this presentation, Tim will explain how you can up the quality of your work and simplify your output without harming a single pixel.
