Andy Budd pointed today to the slides [PDF] and notes about their presentation How to Be a Web Design Superhero. The presentation was given on 11 march at the SXSW 2006 conference by Andy Budd Creative Dir, Clearleft Ltd and Andy Clarke Creative Dir, Stuff and Nonsense. The presentation is very informative but also very beautiful with great graphics of cartoons Heros.
In today’s fast moving environment, the web is changing almost daily. Web designers must know not only their own craft, but appreciate the craft of others. They must understand the needs of their clients, and their clients. They understand what works today, but keep an eye on the future. In short, they must be superheroes. From dealing with new technologies or techniques, to handling clients and managing projects effectively, this entertaining and informative session will deal with issues which face designers every day.
