Design is 80% science and 20% art. It can sometimes seem that the reverse is true, but understanding a few rules and methods can help demystify the discipline.
This talk dives straight into the science of design with a quick-fire grounding in the techniques that help create good interfaces. From using the golden ratio in layout and Fibonacci numbers in typography, to brand design and art direction, it covers it all in tasty, bite-size pieces that will retain their flavor long after the session is done.
Jon is also a member of the International Society of Typographic Designers. His work has featured in magazines like .Net as well as countless design galleries including the CSS Zen Garden, and books like the Web Design Index (Pepin Press) and The Principles Of Beautiful Web Design (SitePoint).
