Who is Mark Boulton?
Mark Boulton is a graphic designer living in South Wales with his wife and two daughters.

In the past, he has worked for the BBC and Agency.com designing wonderful experiences for all manner of clients and people across the world. He is also co-founder of small publishing imprint, Five Simple Steps, where they publish practical design books for the web community.
