In the web design arena, we can sometimes get too restricted by the parameters of our media. I’ve always been a fan of book cover design. It’s something we did back in college, and it was always a fun, and challenging, project.

    So True Fred, there is definitely a great need for web designers to be mroe conceptual in our application of design for the web. Sometimes for this reason it helps doing design for websites being outsourced by ad agencies which allow for more brand focussed work. I find it’s so easy to get stuck into the pattern of starting with a bunch of boxes and buttons and working them into shape.

    Love what you guys are doing here!
