Design is a (hard) job.

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 28/06/2019 pm30 19:29:00

DESIGN WAS so much easier before I had clients. I assigned myself projects with no requirements, no schedule, no budget, no constraints. By most definitions, what I did wasn’t even design—except that it ended up creating new things, some of which still exist on the web. Soon I had requirements, schedules, and constraints, but most […] The post Design is a (hard) job. appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

You got this.

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 22/05/2019 pm31 15:30:00

I’M LEARNING new tech and it’s hard. Maybe you’re in the same boat. Through the rosy lens of memory, learning HTML and Photoshop back in the day was a breeze. It wasn’t, really. And CSS, when it came along in 1996, was even tougher to grasp—in part because it was mostly theoretical, due to poor […] The post You got this. appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

My glamorous life: are you ready to math?

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 13/05/2019 am31 00:15:00

For the past two years, I’ve been publishing a daily work-and-life diary on Basecamp, sharing it with a few friends. This private writing work supplanted the daily public writing I used to do here. In an experiment, I’m publishing yesterday’s diary entry here today: YESTERDAY, Ava and a few of her schoolmates participated in a […] The post My glamorous life: are you ready to math? appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

On Teaching (plus Monday links)

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 29/04/2019 pm30 14:30:00

TEACHING is a great way to find out what you know, and to connect with other human beings around a shared passion. It’s an energy exchange as well as an information one, and the energy and information flow both ways. I’ve been a faculty member in the MFA in Interaction Design program at New York’s […] The post On Teaching (plus Monday links) appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

Healthcare in America

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 23/03/2019 pm31 15:17:00

I’m one of the lucky ones. I have a great doctor and good health insurance. A boring generic healthcare company bought my longterm doctor’s group practice a few months ago. First thing they did was screw up the online patient portal, changing it from the poorly designed, barely usable mess I’d learned to navigate to […] The post Healthcare in America appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

Browser diversity starts with us.

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 07/12/2018 pm31 15:04:00

Developers, designers, and strategists, here’s something you can do for the health of the web:  Test all your sites in Firefox. Yes, we should all design to web standards to the best of our ability. Yes, we should all test our work in *every* browser and device we can. Yes, yes, of course yes.  But […] The post Browser diversity starts with us. appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

The state of things

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 04/12/2018 pm31 16:43:00

At the end of therapy this morning, I felt like the lone Samurai at the end of a Japanese movie. His warlord has betrayed him, his fellow Samurai have fallen into dishonor, and the rice crop failed. After a last meditation, he emerges from his tent, sword flashing, to die fighting 10,000 men. I told […] The post The state of things appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

A narcissist’s prayer of Thanksgiving. (My Glamorous Life)

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 18/11/2018 pm30 16:03:00

I’m about to have Thanksgiving at home with my daughter for the first time since her mom and I split ten years ago. Ours is a gender reversal of a typical divorce situation: usually it’s the mom who does the everyday caregiving, and the dad who gets holiday time with the kid(s). I grew up […] The post A narcissist’s prayer of Thanksgiving. (My Glamorous Life) appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article
