It’s been a bit of a whirlwind this week. After making my way to Wellington, NZ, I had a great time on Tuesday conducting a workshop with the design and development teams at Catch Design, one of the top digital agencies in New Zealand, and gave a talk at their office for the wider digital community that evening. The next morning brought a flight over to Melbourne for Web Directions. It’s the first time I’ve been to one of their events, and it was a real standout experience. Wednesday was their Design Leaders day, and yesterday and today their Design event. The quality of the speakers and presentations was truly exceptional, and I can heartily recommend these events to anyone. I’m absolutely exhausted but it was worth every second.
I’ll be honest: I was so flat-out this week that I decided to do something a little different. I’m including a link to my presentation, and that of Chris Lienert. His talk about learning difficulties and the role type can play in them was fascinating and I thought it paired with mine really well. His look at the origins of language, the difference between them, and how it is perceived in the brain was truly eye-opening.
I’m looking forward to getting out for a ride tomorrow courtesy of Rapha's club rental program, and then head back to San Francisco for Smashing Conference on Sunday. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back on a more regular newsletter schedule by the time I get home.
Until then, have a great week!
