Simon Collison has been working with web sites for almost six years. In
1999, he didn't even have a computer and was a bit web-phobic. How times
change. As lead web developer at Agenzia since 2002, he
has worked on numerous web projects for record labels (Universal, Vertigo,
and Poptones), high-profile recording artists (The Libertines, Dirty Pretty
Things, and The Beta Band), and leading visual artists and illustrators
(Jon Burgerman, Black Convoy, and Paddy Hartley). Simon also oversees a
production line of business, community, and voluntary sector web sites, and
passionately ensures everything is accessible and complies with current web
Away from the office, Simon runs the popular blog Colly Logic, and he is an active member of the so-called
Britpack--a collective of laid-back designers and developers who all share
a passion for responsible web design. When prised away from the laptop,
Simon can most likely be found in the pub or at a gig, waffling incessantly
about good music, football, or biscuits. Simon has lived in many cities,
including London and Reykjavik, but has now settled back in his beloved
Nottingham, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty. He
contributed chapters to "CSS Mastery," and "Blog Design Solutions," and has
just had his very own book published--"Beginning CSS Web Development."
Cameron Adams has a degree in law and one in science; naturally he chose a
career in Web development. When pressed, he labels himself a "Web
Technologist" because he likes to have a hand in graphic design,
that morning. While running his own business he's
consulted and worked for government departments, nonprofit organisations,
large corporations and tiny startups.
As well as helping his list of clients, Cameron has taught numerous
workshops around the country and spoken at conferences worldwide, such as
Anthology - which is one of the most complete question and answer resources
Ian Lloyd runs Accessify.com, a site dedicated to promoting web
accessibility and providing tools for web developers. His personal site
`Blog Standard Stuff`, ironically, has nothing to do with standards for
blogs (it's a play on words), although there is an occasional
standards-related gem to be found there.
Ian works full-time for Nationwide Building Society where he tries his
hardest to influence standards-based design ("to varying degrees!"). He is
a member of the Web Standards Project, contributing to the Accessibility
Task Force. Web standards and accessibility aside, he enjoys writing about
his trips abroad and recently took a `year out' from work and all things
web (but then ended up writing more in his year off than he ever has). He
finds most of his time being taken up by a demanding old lady (relax, it's
only his old Volkswagen camper van).
Ian recently wrote his first book for SitePoint entitled `Build Your First
Web Site the Right Way with HTML and CSS` (in which he teaches web
standards-based design to the complete beginner).
Mark Boulton is a typographic designer from Cardiff, UK. He's worked in
Sydney, London, and Manchester as an Art Director for design agencies for

years, Mark has been working as a Senior Designer for the BBC designing web
sites and web applications.
He is an active member of the International Society of Typographic
Designers and writes a design journal.
Jeff Croft is a web and graphic designer focused on web standards-based
development living and working Lawrence, KS. Jeff also runs a popular blog and personal site, where he writes about many topics, including modern
web and graphic design.
