Main feature

This week’s show is mainly based around a recent article I wrote on creating a great search facility. So if you want to know what we cover I recommend you check that out.


The techno-buster section looks at the different colour formats around and which is used for what. In particular we look at whether you can automatically convert from one format to the other or whether some human judgement is required.

Question time

We also discuss a great question sent in from Debbie that asks how we find the time to keep up with all the latest developments in web design. Specifically we discuss the need for managers to assign time for their web design staff to keep on top of what is a constantly evolving industry.

Web Design Resources

Finally we look at what has to be the ultimate web designer’s resource, the Web Developers Handbook. This site has links to pretty much every web design resource you could ever need.
