I’ve written a number of articles for print and online magazines including .net magazineOffscreenSmashing MagazineThink Vitamin, (now TreeHouse) and chapters for Mastering CSS, Mastering HTML5 and WordPress Essentials.



.net Magazine

In the April 2013 issueof .net magazine I chatted to indie game developers about how easy it now is for web professionals to create an iOS and Android game. I also spoke to the leading mobile SDKs CoronaGameSalad, and Gideros.

In a feature I wrote for the November 2012 issue of .net magazine I argue that a healthy curiosity in human nature helps us create delightful sites and apps.



I’m a contributor to Offscreen magazine.

In issue #5 I interviewed Jon Hicks about being a colourblind designer, creating globally recognised icons, and how cycling changed his life.

In issue #4 I interviewed Jeremy Keith about playing the bouzouki, and why his job as Technical Director involves a lot of goofing off on the Internet!

I also put together a handy international conference guide, so you’ll know where to spend your time (and money!) in 2013.

In issue #3 I interviewed Chris Coyierfrom CSS Tricks on everything from working at Wufoo to the zombie apocalypse!

In issue #2 I interviewed the wonderful Ged Maheux from IconFactory.
