One of the most exciting aspects of the upcoming project I was talking about is that I get a chance to partner with clear:left - a company formed by three well respected Brighton-based bloggers, one of whom, Andy Budd, I've been reading for years now.
With every project I take on I like to make sure it's becomes my best work to date. The last major site I worked on was the CMIS redesign. To date I think this is some of my best output. This is in no small part due to my decision to outsource the graphics. Trevor did an amazing job with that. Even though I can't look at it and think that's all my work I still take some pride over the end result.
With clear:left they take it to the next level. Not only do they create good looking sites, they are usability gurus to boot. This Friday they've organised d.construct - the UK’s first grassroots Web 2.0 conference. This, to me, shows a passion for their work and these are the kind of people I love to work with. I don't doubt the end result of our working together will be an amazing Domino-based solution.
Whether I can show you the end result is doubtful as the client's confidentiality is key to them. Hopefully though I will be able to talk about certain elements of the overall process. clear:left use techniques such as wire-framing, card sorting and story-boarding to achieve the perfect design and information architecture. All of which is completely new to me. More on this as it happens.
