Introducing Shiro

Update — March 19th, 2013: please read this article for updates! I’ve always taken a very liberal/aggressive approach to progressive enhancement. Older browsers get accessible content but layout is limited and aesthetic styles are better lost completely than hacked on with nasty techniques. Every website is different of course. When I redesigned my personal website I had a large […]

The Mobile Fallacy

Brad Frost wrote an excellent overview of Content Parity saying “it’s alright to optimize the presentation of content as long as the content remains accessible in some way, shape or form”. This is so vital to understand when designing for the Web across multiple devices. There are still far too many designers equating mobile with ‘on […]

Preserving the Web

Before I ramble on, if you haven’t seen Jeremy Keith’s talk on time, networks and history, may I point you to his article: Of Time And The Network.

I believe I’m suppose to write about writing. When I started this blog in 2008 post-graduation it began as a tiny link hidden away in the […]

SVG, all fun and games!

When I wrote Resolution Independence for Smashing Magazine I focused almost exclusively on SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) to save our souls from high-resolution hell. SVG is more than just a vector graphic format. I’m here to tell you why it’s better than sliced bread and highlight some of the problems you’ll encounter in everyday front-end usage.

Design Heroes

My bookmark blog Design Heroes has built quite a following over the last few years — who said RSS was dead? — but being more active on Twitter (@dbushell) has made this blog redundant (and a pain to maintain). Design Heroes was my “original” web project so I’ve been hesitant to let it die but lack of time […]
