Sometimes I’m surfing around, and all the sites I find seem to be trying to tell me something. Last night they all seemed to be about the designer’s role on the web. Without the control of print, with usability gurus breathing down their necks, with a host of consultants mouthing hastily invented best practices, with statistics appearing every a link changes from blue to purple, how can a designer get his/her head above water long enough to create?
btw, I just picked up badpractices.com at the urging of mike (mr. biggerhand.com). anyone want to suggest how to use it, I’d love to hear from you.
