This is another great article that covers some key concepts of web design that many often don’t understand. The first section talks about how design is both how something looks and how something works—design is all-encompassing, not just the façade. Later sections discuss the importance of the user, knowing when to focus on the details, and how sketching is one of the best ways to communicate web design ideas.
Some of the suggestions in this article, such as keeping a folder for visual inspiration, are highly helpful. Understanding the problems and strengths with a particular design is also essential to constructive design feedback.
