Port80: sketchnotes and reviews from Twitter

Kevin Mears (@mearso) and Davis Burton (@phishtitz) did some excellent sketchnotes that give a good round up of the talks. We had some great feedback from Twitter too, big thanks to everyone who came and joined in.

  1. Denise Jacobs (@denisejacobs) Talk: Banish Your Inner Critic
    Your inner critic is an unconscious deterrent that stands between the seeds of great ideas and the fruits of achievement, keeping you stuck by telling you you’re just faking it, that others have more talent, that you’ll never achieve the success you seek.
  2. Dan Donald (@hereinthehive) Talk: Designing Evolution
    The fluidity and flexibility the web offers us is something we’ve never really had to deal with properly before.

  4. Nathan Ford (@nathan_ford) Talk: Mastering the dark art of fluid layout
    Beautiful, fluid layouts do not need to be mystifying. Designer and developer Nathan Ford took us through some of the ways traditional grids and other layout methods on the web are hindering our designs, and showed us ways to build with fluidity from the start.

  6. Louise Tierney (@thelittle_t) Talk: Put yourself in their shoes! 
    It’s a fact that many decisions are made by our emotions, why then would you publish a website that makes people feel frustrated? Why don’t we all make websites that just ‘feel right’ to use?

  8. Roy Tomeij (@royTalk: Make Them Click 

    Whether you want it or not, you’re the constant victim of neuro-marketing. We discovered unconscious reasons for our online actions, and how to apply psychology-meets-UX to your own work.

  10. Kimberley Tew (@kimberleytew) Talk: Accessibility for Humans

    Accessibility is often seen as an added extra that must be requested by the client, or as an ugly hindrance to your beautiful design. Not after Kimberley’s talk.
