A beginning consultant brings skills, an experienced consultant brings value.

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 07/02/2018 pm28 16:04:00

A beginning consultant brings skills, an experienced consultant brings value. Early in a good career, you establish that you write the best code on your team, have the deftest touch in UI design, produce more good work more quickly than others. You’re the person who resolves disputes about which typeface was used on an old […] The post A beginning consultant brings skills, an experienced consultant brings value. appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

Pulled Over (My Glamorous Life)

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 09/01/2018 pm31 16:36:00

MOST mornings my daughter Ava and I easily navigate the path across and down Manhattan to her middle school. This morning was not most mornings. There was the bus driver who chose to block 35th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues. Followed by the congestion of every car on 1st Avenue trying to take 37th […] The post Pulled Over (My Glamorous Life) appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

Look back in anchor tags

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 03/01/2018 pm31 15:46:00

NEW YEARS bring thoughts of old years, and, to a designer and veteran “blogger,” thoughts of old work. My personal site, begun in 1994, was many things: an interview zine (my first web client, Donald Buckley, named it: 15 Minutes), a newfangled GIF animation playground, a freeware icon factory, an Advertising Graveyard, and more. But eventually, before it was forgotten entirely, it became […] The post Look back in anchor tags appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

My Glamorous Life: The True Story of My Thanksgiving

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 24/11/2017 pm30 19:59:00

TRAVELED 1400 miles to end up in the same place. Flew my daughter Ava from NYC Laguardia to Chicago Midway in the morning so she could spend Thanksgiving with her mom. To expedite boarding, Southwest Airlines does not assign seats, and there is only one class—Coach. The sooner you board, the better your chance of […] The post My Glamorous Life: The True Story of My Thanksgiving appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

A Dao of Responsive Liquid

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 19/11/2017 pm30 19:18:00

A liquid page will resize to fit whatever size browser window (within reason) that the user has available. … the real goal in building a website is to provide the user with a seamless interface to information. The site should not intrude on the user’s thought processes, but should gently guide them to their desired destination.

Why don’t nonprofit sites convert?

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 18/09/2017 pm30 21:08:00

Living in New York and working in media, I talk to nonprofit organizations a lot. Big or small, they all say the same. No matter how much work they put into their apps and websites, they just don’t get enough new members. No matter how many expensive redesigns they undertake, they still don’t convert. Why […] The post Why don’t nonprofit sites convert? appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

Medium to pay writers; program similar to Readability

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 23/08/2017 pm31 18:53:00

INTERESTING. Medium will now pay writers. The revenue to pay writers will derive, not from advertising—Medium scorns it—but from member contributions. How Medium will pay writers Medium now publishes two kinds of content: public content, viewable by anyone; and private, members-only content. Medium members pay a small monthly fee; in return they get access to […] The post Medium to pay writers; program similar to Readability appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

It’s just lunch.

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 08/08/2017 pm31 14:16:00

I HADN’T heard from her in years. Suddenly, there she was in my in-box. Tentatively proposing coffee. Maybe lunch. A dam broke inside me, releasing a flood of warm memories. Our first, tentative contact ten years or more ago. Getting to know each other. Endless, happy discussions about where this thing was going. Coming together […] The post It’s just lunch. appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article
