    Everything Easy is Hard Again by Frank Chimero

    March 7, 2018

    This essay by Frank Chimero is the smartest thing I’ve read about the web recently. In it, he argues “the web needs pockets of slowness and thoughtfulness as its reach and power continues to increase.” I found it fascinating to read his early experiences of learning how to write markup by reading it. As someone who is passionate about all things web, I hope that this essay inspires the current generation of web designers and developers to keep their work legible for younger designers like myself to learn.

    AIGA: Do Designers Really Need to Know How to Code?

    February 14, 2016

    https://eyeondesign.aiga.org/do-designers-really-need-to-know-how-to-code/

    I used to shy away from coding, but taking Web classes at my school has shown me how valuable of a tool code really is. As graphic designers, we should naturally reject these no-coding tools in favor of doing it yourself. Learning to code is not easy, but like the author says, “there’s no substitute for the real thing.”
