editor’s note

In many professions, the onus is on how much you’ve personally sweated, rather than the results that you’ve achieved. Fortunately, web design isn’t afflicted by this delusion. In fact, the best designers are often those that recognise we achieve our optimum results by building on the work of others and standing on the shoulders of giants. Perhaps the best example of this is through the pervasive use of APIs. By plumbing the excellent dev work of others into our code base, we can make sites and apps that offer our users innovative functionality without having to reinvent the wheel. That’s why this issue we’ve asked Tam Hanna to profile 19 of the most groundbreaking APIs available, so you can add awesome functionality developed by giants like Apple, Google and Mozilla to…

Send your questions to netmag@futurenet.com THIS MONTH FEATURING… DAMIEN FISHER Fisher founded digital marketing agency and web design studio Fishtank 10 years ago. Based in West Yorkshire, its client base spans the world. w: fishtankagency.com t: @teamfishtank ROSS CHAPMAN Chapman is product/UX designer at Etch Sprints, where he runs design sprints, leads digital product design and coaches upcoming designers. w: www.lovedesignsprints.com t: @rosschapman QUESTION OF THE MONTH Regarding ‘design sprints’, the word ‘sprint’ implies to me that you’ll be exhausted at the end of it.

Point of difference + We are based in rural West Yorkshire but this works in our favour. The general association with London agencies is that regal brands with obscene budgets often run campaigns over an extended period. But not all projects can be campaigns and these agencies are not always interested in singular projects due to their various financial commitments.…
