Creating the utopian dream. A site created purely out of your component library.
Somewhere in between our big brand revamp and our new site going live, we’ve given ourselves a new palette of language to work with. This post looks at the reasons why considering your tone of voice is important when designing for components and patterns.
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.
The aesthetics of everyday objects can be a tricky one to get right, particularly when those objects have technical specifications that impact their overall design. I personally can spend a lot of time researching said technical specifications only to be disappointed by the aesthetic qualities on my shortlists.
Making marginal gains in front-end performance.
In recent years, technological advances have enabled easier and more open connections between the digital and physical worlds. As a result we’ve seen a host of amazing products that have capitalised on the ability to be ‘connected’.
For the last few months, we’ve been hard at work on the next version of Fractal.
If you’ve read Interaction 17: Bites from the Big Apple pt.1, you’ll know that some of the Clearleft team decamped to New York City in early February for Interaction 17.

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Interaction 17 conference in New York with some colleagues from Clearleft.
With all this talk about shoes, I can’t help but draw a comparison with our current (or former, depending on when you read this) site. While it’s been a comfortable pair of shoes for us for some time, things around here have changed…
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.
