Forgot to toot this yesterday. Only got today at home and then I drive / train to Leeds. Getting to Leeds will take longer than the flight 🥴
I'm going to do an updated one of these since it's 3 years old 😅
Hi, I am Heydon. I am named after the village Heydon in Norfolk but was not conceived there.
I am a web interface designer, frontend dev consultant, and technical writer for design systems. You may have read one of my books or learned algorithmic CSS from https://every-layout.dev. I write, narrate, and soundtrack videos about the web here: https://briefs.video.
I also record antifascist sludge/garage punk/blues/doom metal as Death Garage (https://deathgarage.bandcamp.com/).

FYI for newbies
Twitter has algorithms to get you engaged. Mastodon does not. So in order to enjoy Mastodon you have to take some time to reach out and find content and follow folks that you enjoy.

Trying to share any and all ideas for the next iteration of my site on dribbble, so any feedback you have is appreciated https://dribbble.com/shots/6342437-Homepage-Style-Experiment
I want it to be fun and concise
