New Adventures in Web Design Audio & Slides

Published: 1st Jul 2011 in

New Adventures in Web Design logoYou may remember that back in January we wrote a very enthusiastic post about a most inspiring conference that took place here in Nottingham. The conference was New Adventures in Web Design. 'Colly' (Simon Collison), web designer and creator of the conference, promised that the event would have "inspiration, thinking, and intelligence at its core." It did not disappoint.

The audio and slides of the talks from the conference are now available online and we thought we'd signpost you to them because we'd like you to get a glimpse into, perhaps, an unexpected view of our world. You don't have to be a web designer or a technical person to appreciate the concepts highlighted in the talks. In fact most of the ideas discussed are useful and enlightening to non-technical website owners.

If you own a website, work with a web designer or just want to listen to some really intelligent and inspiring thoughts then this is well worth checking out:
