’Tis a gift to be SimpleBits

Dan Cederholm of simplebits.com, Dribbble, Cork'd, and much more.

Dan Cederholm is our guest on The Big Web Show, taped live before an internet audience at 1:00 PM ET today, 7 October 2010, on the 5by5 network at live.5by5.tv.

An world-renowned web designer, author, and speaker and a giant in the field of CSS-based design, Dan is co-founder and designer of Dribbble, a vibrant design community for sharing screenshots of your work. He also co-founded Cork’d, the first social network for wine aficionados, with my Big Web Show co-host Dan Benjamin. (Cork’d was later acquired by Gary Vaynerchuk.)

Dan is the founding principal of SimpleBits, a tiny creative studio (“We make websites and products”) based in Salem, Massachusetts, where he has worked with Google, MTV, EA.com, AIGA, ESPN, Blogger, Fast Company, Inc.com, and others, and has been a consulting associate of Happy Cog.

He is the author of three popular books: Handcrafted CSS (New Riders), Bulletproof Web Design (New Riders) and Web Standards Solutions (Friends of ED). Currently Dan is finishing CSS3 For Web Designers, the second book from A Book Apart, coming soon to books.alistapart.com.
