Hi there.

My name is Aaron Gustafson and I work on the web.

I am the founder and technical lead of Easy Designs, through which I help clients elegantly tackle the challenges presented by all the crazy devices and screens you see everywhere using progressive enhancement.

I managed the Web Standards Project (WaSP) and currently serve as an Invited Expert to the W3C’s Responsive Issues Community Group. I am a Rosenfeld Media Expert, Publisher of Web Standards Sherpa, and founded the Chattanooga Open Device Lab. I also co-founded the event series Code & Creativity and Retreats 4 Geeks.

I wrote the web design book Jeffrey Zeldman calls a “modern classic” and Jeremy Keith calls “the clearest, most beautiful explanation of progressive enhancement I’ve ever read”: Adaptive Web Design. I’ve also contributed to numerous other titles. I have written dozens of articles, and helped shape dozens more during my tenure as Tech Editor for the esteemed magazine A List Apart.

I live and work in beautiful Chattanooga, TN with my lovely and talented partner Kelly McCarthy.
