Illustration and Design from the Edge of the Earth
I’m Geri Coady—a designer and illustrator originally from St. John's, Newfoundland (the most easterly city in North America), now living and working in Nottingham, UK. I've got an eye for detail, a passion for the web, and I'm ready to work with clients worldwide. Want to learn more?
I know many folks out there find it increasingly difficult to talk about positive personal achievements when the year and world in general just seems like another raging dumpster fire, but we shouldn’t feel guilty of finding those positives to help push us forward and keep us going.
Looking back on my own year, I feel very fortunate that 2017 was good to me on both a personal and business level.
I’ve been a little quiet here lately, but not without good reason.
For the past year I’ve been working hard to write a follow up to my first book on colour accessibility. I’m so excited to announce Color Accessibility Workflows, now available to purchase from A Book Apart!
Yesterday during my Monotype webinar on colour accessibility, a few questions came up that I didn't get time to answer in the Q&A.
One of them was from Kirsty: “As designers, should we think in grayscale first when designing? And color second? ... as a sort of flavoring to ice cream?” Kirsty, if you're out there—apologies if I wasn't clear in my talk—I definitely don't think this way!
Some of you might have picked up a digital copy of my book, Pocket Guide to Colour Accessibility, when it was published in 2013, but I'm excited to announce that you can now purchase a paperback copy!
The book is available in the Pocket Guide Series: Collection Three by Five Simple Steps, meaning you'll also receive copies of CSS Animations by Val Head, The Craft of Words: Microcopy by the Standardistas, and the previously unreleased Version Control with Git by Ryan Taylor.
