I recently had the pleasure to speak amongst many talented WordPress designers and developers about ‘Designing for WordPress and Web Design: Bridging the gap between design and development.’

From presenting this talk to the WordPress London Meetup group last year, I decided to update the presentation to include a few new bits and a few new examples before presenting at the UK’s WordCamp Lancaster. Since the presentation is image heavy and I expand on points a lot, I thought it would be most useful to people visiting this post to be able to see a screencast of my presentation. Without further ado – please see the video below for the screencast (maybe make a cuppa before you sit down to watch and listen) and if you’d like to revisit any slides they are situated just below the video along with the resources.
