The web, design and front‑end dev

I’m Martin, an interaction designer, front-end development and co-founder of Frontend NE. I write about the web, accessibility and inclusive, user-centred design. Here’s some more about me and what I’m up to.

Writing

If you prefer to dive straight in rather than see the full blog, here are a couple of my most recent articles to get you started.

  1. Apple’s Keyboards revisited

    Apple released a new MacBook Pro last week and the keyboard has been revised, fixing almost all the issues the current/outgoing models have.

  2. The best Sublime Text theme

    Operator Mono’s fancy italics don’t work with every colour scheme, but finding one that does has lead me to my favourite Sublime Text theme.

Subjects

There are a few topics that really interest me:

  • Accessiblity is about designing and building web interfaces that can be used by anyone, something I feel very strongly about.
  • Designing smart, usable interfaces, journeys and interactions is what I do best, and I enjoy analysing others’ great design.
  • Front-end development is a huge passion of mine; HTML and CSS in particular, but anything from Git to Gulp.

Or have a look at the full list of subjects I write about.
