Project: Design

Aesthetic design is not unicorn magic; It is a pragmatic, predictable and achievable process. Let's get to know the syntax!

Would you like to better understand why some things are ugly and know what to do? This talk is for you!

This talk runs a marathon of content starting at the design basics and journeying right through to the two worlds of user experience and user interface design.

You are already a great designer — know it

Andy Fitzsimon describes himself as a designer, geek and friend.

When not writing about himself in the third person, he works as a “senior user experience designer” at the Open Source software giant Red Hat.

Having worked with a wide variety of organizations and living in cities around the world, Andy is here to drop the smug hipster veneer and come clean about all things design.

Win a few arguments with designers, have a little insight into their realm and most importantly to think, create and critique — anything and everything until you understand it completely.
