With this new setup for the site now – it all feels a little bit empty at the moment, awaiting next year’s content. So I thought I should write a quick post on one of our highlights from last year, the talk from an expert speaker which inspired us all.
Ann McMeekin (aka pixeldiva) is a recognised and well respected webdesigner and consultant with specific expertise in accessibility. She is not only an expert in the field but also very passionate about spreading the word. We were very excited when she kindly offered to come and give us a talk on the topic of inclusive design. A perfect end to the year for us :)

With the new academic year approaching fast again – at long last, it is done: a new design and setup for the “design for the web” course’s website :)
It is after too many years that you are now finally looking at an updated design of this course website. Long overdue, I am very happy to say that this new design and setup is now in keeping with our course and working methods (rather than serving as an oudated example). The old design was very popular but also flawed in many ways. It was high time to bring this site up to date, the chance for a fresh start. So a fond farewell to our fan image and its old design – and onto a new structure, a fresh approach, change of colour – a fresh new setup for my new students :)
[For the geeks among you - there are some notes on the new update which tell you a bit more about the new setup.]
Please have a look around and do let me know what you think :) Any thoughts and feedback are welcome :)

High time for the update to the course’s website – and now it’s finally done ;)
When I first took over the “design for the web” course over 6 years ago – I created a course website for my students, to show their work from the first to the last week and keep lesson material, references and resources online. The aim was to keep the site up to date and work on regular updates and keep improving on design, code and usability. It all proved easier said than done…
Keeping on top of both the teaching (with all the dreaded paperwork involved which appears to be ever increasing) as well as my freelance design work made it impossible to spend time on this site. Finally… I managed to make time ;) So here you are – a fresh look – a new setup :)
The old site has now been taken offline ~ there were simply too many broken links to students’ sites from past years, too many outdated references and materials.
And for those geeks among you – here are a few notes on the new setup:
