My Glamorous Life: Riding North

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 24/06/2018 am30 03:40:00

Woke 5:00 AM New York. Fed cats, crossed town to Penn Station. Uber software was misbehaving, so instead of Penn Station New York, it booked me in Penn Station Dallas, Texas—a three-day ride costing tens of thousands of dollars. The driver and I had a good laugh over it. Amtrak Acela First Class Lounge, a […] The post My Glamorous Life: Riding North appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

On Rejection

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 14/06/2018 pm30 18:43:00

Recently I had the privilege of reading a book proposal which the author shared in hopes of being published. It was a beautifully written treatise, well structured, nicely paced, logically argued, and thoroughly researched. The author had clearly poured time, thought, and years of lived experience into the text. The topic had relevance for our […] The post On Rejection appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

The Cult of the Complex

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 01/06/2018 pm30 18:22:00

“IN AN INDUSTRY that extols innovation over customer satisfaction, and prefers algorithm to human judgement (forgetting that every algorithm has human bias in its DNA), perhaps it should not surprise us that toolchains have replaced know-how.” Our addiction to complicated toolchains and overbuilt frameworks is out of control. Web-making has lately become something of a […] The post The Cult of the Complex appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

For your pleasure

Half the trip is listening to how each track yearns for and blends […] The post For your pleasure appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

On practice

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 30/04/2018 pm30 14:59:00

Over the decades I’ve used computers, my drawing skill has all but vanished—along with my ability to do calligraphy or even write legibly. Which is why I’ve started forcing myself to sketch again every day. Practice is the best form of hope. Also published on Medium.

Cossack

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 23/04/2018 am30 01:02:00

“Are you here with your child?” It’s a Sunday and my daughter is visiting her mom. I’d spent the morning lugging my daughter’s old clothes and toys to a donation bin, where they’ll be given to some of New York’s neediest kids. Now I was on a photo walk, shooting places in my neighborhood along […] The post Cossack appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

We need design that is faster and design that is slower.

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 24/02/2018 pm28 20:05:00

During a recent conversation with  David Sleight, Design Director at ProPublica, I found myself realizing and saying “we need design that is faster and design that is slower.” Who are we and what is this thing called design? When I say  “we,” I mean our whole industry, when I say “our whole industry,” I mean design, […] The post We need design that is faster and design that is slower. appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.
