Web design and stuff

November 19th 2009 - Web Design

Just read this really thoughtful insight into web design which I have to say I agree with. Its to do with web design books and why we don’t feel as inspired to do a bit of web design after reading them (unlike other creative fields photography etc) .

I feel that the problem with putting websites in a book is that they are interactive things and can only be fully appreciated in there own environment.

Other fields of design aren’t limited like that. You can be inspired because it’s still static. I think product designers face the same issue as web designers which is why I don’t find those types of books that inspiring either.

When I started out it was almost like code first, design second. I think though these days with css, flash and things like mootools etc you have enough to put the code down for a sec and focus totally on the design.

What I try to do is design something without thinking about the code then when it comes to coding try and figure out how’s its going to be done then. This helped me become a better designer and coder when I broke it down that way.

Anyways check out sahadeva.com article I think its worth a read 🙂

That’s really wow I say because this would be a source of getting inspiration and that is all what is required to start the things, thank you.


Dear Author http://www.designtoday.info !
It is a pity, that now I can not express – it is very occupied. I will return – I will necessarily express the opinion on this question.
