As the Web turns 25, what was once the dominion of engineers has increasingly been taken over as design minded. Today the aesthetic has at least as much ownership of the direction of how we explore online as the infrastructure.
In the March 2014 edition of the Technical.ly podcast, we discuss how influential design is and where it is taking us online.
Structure of the half-hour conversation:
- What are the design trends of the moment? Mobile, as discussed here and exampled here and extrapolated here.
- Design informs function but shouldn’t replace it: The opposition to ‘beautiful journalism.’
- Design as differentiator: The Manhattan startup Chatwala and how its risk is by distancing social media competition with design.
