This week, I came across some useful and neat-looking slides on design, (the latter of which is a good thing given the theme!).
First, from grammar to models and perception, Simon Collison, a freelance designer, writes about a dialect for design. The presentation has really clean graphics; don't forget to look at his website.
Second, the smart folk at Jess 3 have authored this presentation on the art of social web design. 'Curators are the DJ's of the web': indeed!
