Design theory for the web workshop at Interlink conference

Sadly, Interlink conference has been cancelled. I’m gutted that I won’t be visiting Canada this year, but I totally understand how difficult it is to run a conference, especially if you’re trying to put on the best possible event for your attendees and speakers. I’m running my ‘Design theory for the web’ workshop at Interlink… Read more
