Designer Koans

No ultimate difference

One day a designer visited Master HyperTextCascade, and inquired, “Master, how will my designs be different when I have mastered code?”

How not to scale css

Several years ago I got curious about how css worked at scale. When I first started out, there weren’t nearly as many learning resources as there are now. CSS zen garden was amazing, at the time it showed how much you could change a design without altering the html.

In the beginning, that’s what people sold me as a feature. By writing css, you could make a change one place and have it propagate everywhere. In principle this sounds pretty good.

In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is - as it physically is. THis fact makes color the most relative medium in art.

In order to use color effectively it is necessary to recognize that color deceives continually. To this end, the beginning is not a study of color systems.

What counts here - first and last - is not so-called knowledge of so-called facts, but vision --seeing.
