I’d like to share what I feel is a very poignant and thought provoking website/article…
What does it mean to natively design for screens?
Some thoughts on digital canvases
by Frank Chimero • November 2013
A designer’s work is not only about how the things look, but also their behaviors in response to interaction, and the adjustments they make between their fixed states. In fact, designing the way elements adapt and morph in the in-between moments is half of your work as a designer. You’re crafting the interstitials.
We’ve been more aware of this interstitial work in the past few years because of responsive design’s popularity and its resistance to fixed states. It’s a step in the right direction, but it has made work crazy frustrating.
Frank presents some great reflection, introspection and questions on some serious issues facing the web world. Developers, designers, entrepreneurs, techies and general users of this great web should take a peek – examining what we do and why in this way is real darn healthy… Thanks Frank! I feel just a little less alone with these thoughts. Bravo.
