We’re in a heated and prolonged state, where the return of native apps is inspiring both end-users and creative developers, but is also damaging the Web’s freedom.
The ‘Web vs. Native’ argument shouldn’t exist. We should be working on a unified solution, mixing the visibility of the Web with the raw power of native applications.
Web apps and native apps aren’t good enough on their own, and it’s up to interaction designers & problem solvers to rise above this.
I’ve been dabbling with LESS recently, and at first, I hated it. But now I’m slowly converting, and here’s a few quick technical and convention-based tips, to hopefully reduce its PITA levels.
Whilst spending a week on the pistes in Andorra, I kept track of a few of the latest goings-on on the web. Due to a lack of Mac, I saved most of them to read when I arrived back in the UK. And I was actually surprised to see what a kick-start 2012 has had so far. Continue reading →

But I now feel like it’s time for it to evolve into something else entirely.
Our industry is thriving with young, talented designers & developers at the moment. (By young, I’m referring to people who are thinking of going into it full-time) The only problem is, I feel like not enough advice is given out these guys, so I’ve tried to alleviate that…
As well as settling into my new job in at Made by Many, this month has been about creating some very small CSS tricks (as opposed to any big front-end experiments). Unfortunately, I’ve posted them in a few different places; so I thought I would summarise them, and explain them in a bit more depth.
Update: It turns out that jQuery does have this functionality built-in. When using the ‘toggle’ and ‘toggleClass‘ methods, you can choose to override it with the ‘switch’ parameter. Every day is a school day! I still think the principle of this code is one to think about.← Older posts
