A friendly reminder from your local web developer/designer:
How to Ruin a Web Design – The Design Curve.
A little bit less abstract: How to live happily with a great designer.
Maybe I’m not a great designer, but I will say I may be a better designer than a lot of other web designers (and average Joes, for that matter). Hmm sounds a bit cocky, doesn’t it? Consider it an attempt to balance confidence with the proper humility.
