Hi, I’m Ethan.

I’m a web designer, writer, and speaker, and the fellow who started that whole “responsive design” thing.

It’s real nice to meet you.

The work I do.

I’ve helped organizations design and build better sites and services, and to ensure they work everywhere. And in my work I’ve been fortunate enough to help clients like People Magazine, The Sundance Film Festival, and The Boston Globe to refine their design processes, improve their design systems, and to build more accessible products.

If that sounds like something that’d be useful to your organization, drop me a line. I’d love to hear more about your project.

Conferences, workshops, & training—oh my.

I’ve spoken at conferences across the world, including Adobe MAX, An Event Apart, and Webstock. And I frequently offer workshops to my clients on a variety of topics, from pattern-driven design practices, to modern design/development workflows, to the fundamentals of responsive layout.

If you’d like to invite me to speak at your conference, or to give a workshop at your company, drop me a line.

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 “The design systems we swim in.”)
