"like bricks" is how I explained this new layout to a friend recently. I'm not a fan of following trends but since I first saw the brickwork layouts it really clicked with me. Microsoft, BBC and others have been following a 'chaotic design' methodlogy for a while and I feel they're right to do so. I love these the bite size bits of information. For this site I utilised the Isotope jQuery plugin, which proved to be simple and effective to implement.

Experiment, being a geek at heart means I'm always experimenting. My latest endeavour saw me take on php (more specifically wordpress ) and win. Take a look at the result of a week's worth of development ajsphotographic....

Designing in the browser? I'm no designer, but I know my way around photoshop and when putting a layout together my goal is to get in to the browser (i.e. the real world) as quickly as possible and leave photoshop behind.
