Develop for Chrome First:

The team at Zurb knock out some amazing work, so it was interesting to see their recommendation to develop for Chrome first before moving on to other browsers.

Homage to the Square by Josef Albers

I remember seeing some original prints by Josef Albers back when I was a freshman in architecture with some accompanying thoughts about color theory from my professor. I didn’t think too much of it at the time. All I saw were some squares in some pleasing colors. Studying graphic design for a while now has put Albers’ work into a much greater and relevant perspective for me. The grid makes sense. The proportions make sense. The color makes sense. It all just makes sense.

The common response to work like this often goes along the lines of— “I could have done that. Why is that famous?” To be honest, I used to have the same thoughts. But understanding the work and why the artist or designer put elements where they are, why they chose those colors, and simply understanding his or her design decisions as a whole, creates an entirely new experience of looking at certain works. This makes design— like Albers’ Homage to the Square— so much more enjoyable.

Of course, the vast majority of the population cannot see or understand these things (and I don’t mean to say this with an air of elitism or arrogance). This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it just goes to show the large disconnect that can occur between viewer and designer.
