The web, design and front‑end dev

I’m Martin, an interaction designer, front-end development 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. How to diff branches in Git

    Turns out it’s pretty easy to look at the differences between two branches in Git. This is useful when coming back to a feature branch after a while.

  2. Git rebase versus merge

    There are two ways to get a branch up to date with master before raising a PR: merge and rebase. Here are pros and cons with each.

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.
  • Front-end development is a huge passion of mine; HTML and CSS in particular, but anything from Git to Gulp.

Or have a look at the full list of subjects I write about.
