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. And hopefully you’ll have a idea of how the conference played out. If you haven’t already read it, take a quick look, then read on for part 2…
For anyone with an eye on current activity in the technology world, it will come as no surprise that the legendary Nokia 3310 ‘feature’ phone has been relaunched by Finnish tech company HMD.
Recently at the Clearleft studio there has been somewhat of a push to readjust the balance between bustling working space and distraction-free productivity.
We have a tradition here at Clearleft of having the occasional lunchtime braindump. They’re somewhat sporadic, but it’s always a good day when there’s a “brown bag” gathering.
At the beginning of February, a bunch of us Clearleft folk set off for a week in New York City to attend Interaction 17, 6 - 8 February 2017. This was my first Interaction conference, so I thought I’d scribble down some takeaways from a newbie’s perspective.
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.
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…
I’ve recently had the pleasure of helping create a brand new pattern library for a client. We decided to take the opportunity to use [Fractal](http://fractal.build/), a pattern library build tool created by [Mark](http://clearleft.com/is/mark-perkins).
