Jeffrey Zeldman: Understanding Web Design

“Author and Happy Cog founder Jeffrey Zeldman answers the question: what does a web designer need most? Skills and knowledge of software, of course, but empathy – the ability to think about and empathize with your user – is by far the most important. Good useful education is hard to find, and within companies there is often no departmental standardization. Good graphic design is not the same as good user experience design, he explains. In fact, ‘good web design is invisible’ – it feels simple and authentic because it’s about the character of the content, not the character of the designer.” (AIGA Gain 2008)
