The Art of Web Design Explained

In PBS' latest Off Book video, they examine the art of web design. We spend so much of our time on websites these days that when they're good, we don't even think about them anymore. But, of course, it wasn't always like that. People had to build them bare before they could add some pizazz to it.

PBS says:

The explosion of the internet over the past 20 years has led to the development of one of the newest creative mediums: the website. Web designers have adapted through the technological developments of html, CSS, Flash, and JavaScript, and have mastered the balance between creativity and usability. Now with the advance of mobile, the greatest websites have taken user experience and responsive design to the next level, and continue our evolution from print to a digital world.

Web design =/= art.

A good designer maximizes user interactivity+revenue.

Web design == science.
