Paul Rand Tribute Video

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

Without content, there’s no form. And without form, there’s no content. A work of art is realized, when form and content are indistinguishable.

Understanding Web Design

We get better design when we understand our medium. Yet even at this late cultural hour, many people don’t understand web design.

Jeffrey Zeldman writes a very insightful A List Apart article on the role of web design in the grand scheme of life, and the challenges and tasks we face. Oh, and write down this quote, because it will be around for a while:

Web design is the creation of digital environments that facilitate and encourage human activity; reflect or adapt to individual voices and content; and change gracefully over time while always retaining their identity.
