The web, design and frontend development

I’m Martin, an interaction designer, frontend developer and co-founder of Frontend NE. I write about the web, accessibility and inclusive, user-centred design. Here’s some more about me and what I’m up to.

Writing

If you prefer to dive straight in rather than see the full blog, here are a couple of my most recent articles to get you started.

  1. Text snippets on Apple devices

    I’ve been using Apple’s built-in Text Replacement instead of TextExpander for a while now. It’s pretty basic, but it’s free and it does the job.

  2. The right way to use break tags in HTML

    Break tags are often misused. I’ll demo some markup patterns to avoid them, and reveal the one and only legitimate use case I can think of.

Subjects

There are a few topics that really interest me:

  • Accessiblity is about designing and building web interfaces that can be used by anyone, something I feel very strongly about.
  • Designing smart, usable interfaces, journeys and interactions is what I do best, and I enjoy analysing others’ great design.
  • Frontend development is a huge passion of mine; HTML and CSS in particular, but anything from Git to Gulp.
