Mark Boulton runs a small design studio, Mark Boulton Design, working with clients such as ESPN, CERN, Al Jazeera and Drupal. In the past, he worked for the BBC and Agency.com, designing experiences for all manner of clients and people across the world. He also runs a small publishing imprint, Five Simple Steps, and a tool for making grids for web: Gridset.
Over the years, every designer picks up a ton of little tips and tricks along the way. Scraps of code, ways of doing things, stories of how not to do it, and how to do it. In this talk, Mark will share some thoughts from his notebook. You'll hear tales of designing by committee, the death of typesetting, content mountains and what happened when he led a team of designers in India for a week.
