Hi, I’m Ethan.

I’m an independent web designer, writer, and speaker. I’m also the fellow who started that whole “responsive design” thing. In my work, I help organizations design and build better sites and services, and to ensure they can be accessed by everyone, everywhere.

It’s real nice to meet you.

The work I do.

Over the years, I’ve helped companies tackle some of the biggest challenges of designing and building for the web. I’ve worked with clients like People Magazine, The Sundance Film Festival, and The Boston Globe. Together, we’ve created beautiful responsive websites, improved their design systems, and created faster, more accessible products.

Does that sound like a project you’re working on? Drop me a line, and let’s work on it together.

Some things I’ve written.

I’ve written two popular design books: one on responsive design, and another on responsive design patterns and principles.

My blog’s where I jot down thoughts about digital design, technology, and everything else under the sun. The most recent entry is “Before dawn, and after dusk.
