I've seen a couple of demo videos now from Macaw, which is a new web design tool that is under development. I'm very impressed. Not only with the interface but also with the code that it produces. Anyway, here's their latest demo video.

Last week I went to the Port 80 Web Design Conference (Twitter) in Newport. The conference was organised by Joel Hughes who wanted to have a web design conference in South Wales. Great credit to him for deciding to do something like this – and then doing it! Here’s my take on the conference.

So, I have been thinking a lot about responsive web design recently. I’ve been reading about some CSS frameworks and recoding some of my core files so they can adapt to any grid system that I choose to use.
