Many thanks to Chris Marstall, creative technologist at the Boston Globe, who hosted our visit to the Globe Lab on Thursday evening. We got a chance to see some pretty interesting projects, and learned about how BostonGlobe.com uses responsive design to reformat itself for a wide variety of digital devices.

Today, the Society for News Design honored BostonGlobe.com as the “World’s Best Designed website.” You can read about that here.

We also heard from Miranda Mulligan, design director for BostonGlobe.com and Boston.com; Damon Kiesow, senior product manager for the two sites; Joel Abrams, social-media product manager; and Andy Boyle, newsroom Web developer.

All that and food, too.

Many thanks to our hosts for an interesting and informative evening.
