Jeffrey Zeldman “The experienced web designer['s]… job is not to whine about emerging commonalities but to use them to create pages that are distinctive, natural, brand-appropriate, subtly memorable, and quietly but unmistakably engaging. If she achieves all that and sweats the details, her work will be beautiful. If not everyone appreciates this beauty–if not everyone understands web design–then let us not cry for web design, but for those who cannot see.”

Jeffrey Zeldman “Good information architecture enables people to find and do what they came for. Great information architecture takes find out of the equation: the site behaves as the visitor expects. Poor or missing information architecture neuters content, design, and programming and devalues the site for its owners as well as the audience it was created to serve. It’s like a film with no director. The actors may be good, the sets may be lovely, but audiences will leave soon after the opening credits.”

Jeffrey Zeldman “Good web design is about the character of the content, not the character of the designer.”
