I'm going to go with a font; unless their weights vary wildly, in which case I shall call them a face.

Couldn't agree more with those comments about inclusive design. It's so often seen as an add-on (if at all) rather than a starting point. Will there be a transcript or video of the talk on inclusive design anywhere?
Congratulations on reaching your half-decade. I've only discovered your blog in the last twelve months, but in that time I've really enjoyed catching up on the older posts. Best of luck for the next five years Mike.

That looks like a great way to nurture and develop design thinking skills... ...I reckon I could do with a copy!

Happy birthday for Monday. That herringbone fabric is rather lovely; is your rather talented wife lucky enough to have a local supplier or does she order her fabric from the nettyweb?

Agree completely. I set up an auto reply explaining that my email was accessed from a shared workstation and would be checked between 8.30 and 9.00 in the morning. Anything urgent outside of this time would require a phone call. It was one of the most productive things I did. People soon got used to the idea and it meant I could draw up a to-do at 9.00am and then not worry about email for the rest of the day. There can be an over-reliance on email checking that makes people think being busy is the same as being productive.

Thank you; whilst I was familiar with the work of Marion Deuchars, you've opened my eyes to the work of Sara and Laura. I was also interested to read your description of female designers "fading away the moment they had children". I've always felt it was a bit too simple an explanation when some have implied the relative lack of really influential female designers is due to an "old boys' club" at play. Have you kept in touch with any of these female designers? Are any of them now pursuing a solo/freelance career in the same way these illustrators have?
Indeed; Very well deserved. Congratulations. I look forward to seeing where your journey goes in the future.

In order of importance: You are designing for the end user. . . in a manner that the client is happy to pay for. . . ideally you will be proud of the outcome. . . and you hope other designers will approve of it. That's my experience anyway.

Sad as it is to admit this, it really is 'FUN!' Thanks for pointing me toward it.
