Spring Blossom

  • Spring has arrived in my wee corner of SE22, and very welcome it is too.
  • Natalie Downe's slides on practical, maintainable CSS. I wish I'd been able to be there for the actual presentation.
  • The Fluid Grid system. I remain unconvinced that fluid is the way to go for all sites, but for those where it is appropriate, this could come in really handy.
  • Designers are not programmers.
  • Need a napkin? I know I do.
  • Birds on a wire. Beautiful.
  • Hampus Jageland. He's got some great stuff in his portfolio. I particularly like the branding work for Reading is Fundamental. It's modern and minimalist, but it's got a kind of classic, Penguin-esque feel to it.
  • Yerba Mate tea. Haven't tried this before, but I spotted some in my favourite wee deli when I went out for a wander earlier and thought I'd give it a try. It's apparently some kind of miracle tea. So far, all I can say is that it's a bit of an acquired taste (and colour), but it's not unpleasant.
  • Spring 2009 Knitty is up!
  • The Yarn Harlot on brit TV. Stephanie (who is in Canada) spoke to Greg Kinnear (the actor) while he was on the Graham Norton show (in the UK). Confused? It's a long story, but a very funny one. The links are there for following.
  • Happy Cog are working on Redesigning Mozilla and doing the whole Design by Community thing. Hope it doesn't wind up looking more like a camel than a horse.
