Creating the utopian dream. A site created purely out of your component library.
Today is International Women’s Day. Looking at their website, it’s clear to me that there is much to be inspired about, but also that there is much work still to be done.
For the last few months, we’ve been hard at work on the next version of Fractal.
It’s all go, go, go at Clearleft while we’re working on a new version of our website …accompanied by a brand new identity. It’s an exciting time in the studio, tinged with the slight stress that comes with any kind of unveiling like this.
The day I started at Clearleft was the first time I met Richard Rutter. I only recognised him because I studied the team photographs prior to joining the company.
I’ve been working on the upcoming relaunch of the Clearleft website, complete with a whole new brand identity!
There’s an old Spanish proverb that translates roughly to the saying ‘the cobbler’s children have no shoes’. Meaning that someone with a specific skill is often so busy assisting others that their own affairs go unattended. A classic and frustrating conundrum.
Over the last year and a half Fractal has evolved from an internal prototype at Clearleft into an open source project that we (and now many others) are using to create and manage component libraries. It’s been exciting to get validation of the core ideas behind the project and great to see all the different ways that others have been pushing at the boundaries of what is currently possible with it.
Let me set the scene for you. It’s Monday 28th November and my brain is about to explode…
It’s been another busy year conference-wise here at Clearleft. But that’s certainly not an excuse to rest on our laurels. No indeed. We’ve been working away behind the scenes and our 2017 events calendar is shaping up nicely - first up to announce is UX London 2017.
Email newsletters are having quite the renaissance right now. We figured we’d throw our hat into the ring and introduce Clearletter.
September is a busy time for events. Here in Brighton, there’s the Digital Festival, packed full of events for the whole month. Many of those events will be happening right here at our 68 Middle Street event space.
The component/pattern library has proven to be an effective, robust format for delivering documented code and design patterns to our clients. So I thought I’d share a few notes on some lessons I’ve learned from designing, building and shipping various iterations of this format over the years.
