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.

Interaction 17: Bites from the Big Apple pt.1

News
16th February 2017

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.

The cobbler’s kids got nothing on design agencies

Opinion
25th January 2017

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.

The cobbler’s children have no shoes

Announcement
9th January 2017

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.

Moving Fractal forwards

Announcement
6th January 2017

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.
