The past few weeks I have been entirely overwhelmed with inspiration and need to drop some serious shout outs:
People and Places
First and foremost, the the entire web design/dev/tech community. What an open, motivating, and supportive group of people! In particular:
- Brad Frost – whose work makes me so excited to build things.
- Matt Griffin‘s seriously fantastic articles on A List Apart
- Everything on Bearded’s Github
- Laura Kalbag – freelance inspiration.
- Destroy Today/Jonnie Hallman – gave great talk at NYC Creative Mornings.
- 2013 Web Design Day, thanks Jason and Val!
- Rob Harr‘s (of Sparkbox) talk on pricing at Refresh Pittsburgh
- CatapultPGH, coworking in Pittsburgh
- New Work City, coworking in NYC
- And so many more!
Literally every day I see a new tool, concept, or trend that is so exciting I can’t make things fast enough to use all of them. Again, in particular:
- Oh, Sass!
- Oh, grids! Hey, Susy.
- Chris Coyier on Grunt.js
- Pattern Lab
- BEM, OOCSS, and all those (even though I think I’ve opted out for various reasons)
- Eddie Machado‘s starter theme Bones (can I plug this enough? No.)
- WordPress 3.8
- My daily Sidebar.io email. If you aren’t subscribed, subscribe now.
- Sublime Text – obvy, but seriously.
- Again, so many more!
