The design studio of Dieter Peirs.

Practice what you preach

As much as I enjoy thinking about concepts and perfecting the result, the act of creating and building is where I feel like I'm making a real difference. As a result, I'm a big advocate of prototyping, testing and iterating as fast as possible. But when it comes to my own website I struggle to bring my own advice into practice.

This week I came across the following quote from Brendan Dawes via Sara Soueidan :

It may not be perfect, but nothing ever is anyway [..] Yet it's out there just in case someone finds it useful at some point ...

It inspired me to give this writing and sharing thing a go. If everything goes well you're reading the result now :-) It will not be perfect... mistakes (and typos) will be made. I will write about my personal opinions and share my daily experience with design, front-end development, accessibility and sustainable design. I aim to keep it positive and welcome your feedback.

To finish, some links to my favourite blogs. I owe these people a lot for the continuous inspiration, motivation and advice.
