Had the fortune of having a drink with these guys last night ; Greg and Colly, event organisers for the New Adventures in Web Design conference that I’m at. Colly (head honcho, no glasses) seemed quite pleased with the way it’s all going, and for someone who’s clearly had so much to do recently, seemed utterly chilled. Tomorrow (the main event proper, sounds (and I don’t use this word very often) AWESOME!))
Today I attended a workshop with Steph Hay, all to do with building trust on the web. I learned some new licks and a very useful process on a principal called Content First Designing. Almost the pre wireframe stage of web design. The other attendees ranged from a whiskey company web designer to UX people to an interaction designer for MTV to someone who runs a big slimming world type website. Fascinatingly varied.
I had a smidge of free time this afternoon, so shot up the rest of a roll of test film (Ecktar 100) on my new Leica AF-1C and had it processed at Boots in 1 hour. From my ‘shoot some film’ blog a week or so ago, I experienced ‘The Wait’. I actually opened them up there and then in Boots. Unfortunately the battery on my laptop has died so I’ve got no way of uploading photos at the moment.. But some of them are AOK!
Tonight I’m going to an event called Second Wednesday… Via Yo Sushi! For my tea I think.
