Web Design Survey
10 comments | Posted: 25 April 07 in General, by Nathan Smith
Yesterday, I took the 2007 survey over at A List Apart. This is the first time they have offered it, but it is my understanding that it will be done annually from here on out. The reasoning behind the survey is that we as web designers are sort of an odd bunch. We don’t really fit into the traditional mold of Art, nor are we confined to the definitions which govern the IT world.
In fact, to truely be considered a top-notch web designer (and I’m not saying that’s me), one must be well versed in a number of inter-disciplinary aspects. Jeff Croft described his understanding of what it takes in a past article, entitled Web Design in Higher Education. His list consisted of several factors…
- Graphic Design
- Psychology/Human Factors
- Human-Computer Interaction
So, if you have the time, and are familiar with some of the aspects of web design, or work in an environment which involves use of the web, please make the time to take the survey. It will only take you around 9 or 10 minutes to complete, but will be contributing a drop in the bucket in an effort to gain more respect for web design as a profession. According to Zeldman, there have been an number of respondents – totaling over 12,000 people in 24 hours.
