I am Liam. Dadapixel began in April 2014 as a place where I could write (and - in the process - learn) about design, advertising, and other creative matters.

Since then, it's grown to encompass my freelance business, the DESIGN NOTES podcast, and so many other projects. So I've relaunched the Dadapixel brand across four sites, unifying their design and experiences to best share what I'm up to. Check out some highlights below, or navigate to one of the full sites.


Project Phoebe

Mutation means we can design every app to work for every person. Project Phoebe is an open-source exploration of mutative design. Learn more about how we can allow interfaces to evolve naturally.


The Expressive Palette - DESIGN NOTES with Carla Diana

In this episode I spoke with Carla Diana, a hybrid designer working on smart objects and robots at the intersection of emotional expression and human-computer interaction.

In the episode, we cover the process of translating feelings like stress into lights and sounds, having conversations with autonomous vehicles, and whether our eventual robot companions will experience emotions (and a sense of self) that in any way map onto our own.
