Hello, I'm Marc Friederich 👋
Welcome to my personal website. I share here interesting links, some thoughts, some pictures I made and an archive of my talks. You may know me as a co-founder of Antistatique, a human centric web agency. Or as core-team’s member of Interaction 18, The 2018 Interaction Design conference.
This is where I collect thoughts, URL and words on my web journey
Simple is the web, and why I love it so much.
Through my 20 years’ experience of designing and building web pages, I learned to unlearn, to take some distances, to fight and also accept to lose for the better.
