Insites

Over the past six months, Elliot Jay Stocks and Keir Whitaker of consultancy Viewport Industries, have travelled across the US and UK to meet and interview 20 of the biggest names in web design.

The results have been gathered together in rather tasty-looking new 256-page book Insites.

For the book, Stocks and Whitaker spoke to the likes of Tina Roth Eisenberg, author of the Swissmiss blog; Typekit creative director Jason Santa Maria; and Brendan Dawes, formerly of Magnetic North.

They spoke about big wins, personal journeys and lessons learned – the kind of tales, the authors say, ‘that you’ll never hear on the conference stage’.

Each interview features a timeline of five key dates in each person’s life, and Q&As about their work and experiences.
