Hi, I’m Ethan.

I’m an independent web designer, and the fellow who started that whole “responsive design” thing.

It’s real nice to meet you.

The work I do.

I help teams make beautiful sites and services, and ensure they work everywhere. I’ve done it for clients like People Magazine, The Sundance Film Festival, The Boston Globe, and many, many others. And I’d love to do the same for you.

So whether you’re a small product team, a cause-driven, socially-minded organization, or a multinational corporation: if your next project needs a designer, a front-end developer, or some combination of the two, drop me a line! I’d love to work with you.

Conferences, workshops, & training—oh my.

I’ve been lucky enough to speak at conferences across the world, including Adobe MAX, An Event Apart, and Webstock. And I frequently offer client workshops on a variety of topics, from pattern-driven design practices, to the fundamentals of responsive layout.

Also! Karen McGrane and I offer in-house workshops on the entire responsive design process, if your team’s looking to update its workflow.

If you’d like to invite me to speak at your conference, or to give a workshop at your company, drop me a line! I’d love to hear more about what’s on your mind.

A few things I’ve written.

A few years ago, I wrote a little book about responsive design. More recently, I wrote a book about responsive design patterns. (If you’ve read either: thank you so much.)

I also have a blog where I occasionally write about responsive design, the web, and everything else under the sun. (My most recent entry? That’d be “Kumiho.”)
