Inspired Design Decisions #3: Inspired By Ernest Journal

After running his small studio for eighteen years, Andy Clarke was exhausted, his business had become a burden, and his enthusiasm for working in design had disappeared. Then, Andy became curious about art direction and editorial design and spending time exploring new approaches to design rekindled his enthusiasm.

Curiosity keeps a creative mind open to new possibilities and that’s what Ernest Journal magazine — the inspiration for the third instalment of Inspired Design Decisions — is all about.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Designing using modular grids.
  • Using layout to pace a person’s experience.
  • More adventurous layouts based on Bootstrap.

This webinar will change the way you think about designing with grids. Included with this webinar is a beautifully designed PDF of Andy’s Inspired Design Decisions magazine and full code examples.

About The Speaker

Andy Clarke is a well-known web designer, design consultant, and mentor. He’s been called plenty of things since he started working on the web. His ego likes terms such as “Ambassador for CSS,” “industry prophet,” and “inspiring,” but he’s most proud that Jeffrey Zeldman once called him a “triple-talented bastard.” With his wife Sue, Andy founded Stuff & Nonsense in 1998, where they’ve helped companies around the world to improve their designs by providing consulting and design expertise.
