Many thanks to Smashing Magazine for publishing my desktop wallpaper for February 2018 – “Charlie Chaplin”. “Sometimes we think too much and feel to little”.

Designing in the browser and other thoughts…
December 10, 2017
Until 2010 we created fixed websites. The only issue was IE (no there aren’t any issues like that today-be happy, those were the tough times). From 2010 with responsive design that first appeared as a trend, from 2014 as a standard we have to create not just good user experience but a great one, so the content works perfectly with the design and it can be read and scan on various devices. With that we have new challenges coming, as it is designing in the browser or how I call it: designing in the code.
Designing in the browsers means seeing the design in the surrounding in which it will work as soon as possible. Sending mockups to the clients is time wasting and it is just a static picture. You will be much faster and you will cut the development time. What is really essential is that your clients will have much better understanding of the design once you send them html demo: index.html, about.html… They will test it in all the devices they have starting from mobiles to tablets, laptops and desktop computers. If you just started to learn web design, focus first on learning to code, express your creativity and never give up. At the end of the day it is not important which type of framework you use, but if the website is functional or not.
Also I am not sure how web design is going to evolve within ten years from now, but if you are living in the country that is developed work locally first than globally: small busines websites for example, other way around is sometimes hard. Nevertheless, educate the clients that they need the website which is their brand. Create something yourself. Create a product. Express your creativity.
The future of this world is not in digitalization as everybody are around that hype, but in surviving and helping this planet, so that all of us can learn and grow in healthy environment. When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money. We can be HEROES just for one day. In a society that tries to standardize thinking, individuality is not highly prized.
Think, but think smart and with your own head. Read the wonderful book: MORAL GROUND, Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril and act.
