Nope — Web Design Isn't Dead

web design lives

“I would dance on the grave of the type of conceited web design that builds graphic-rich, information-poor art sites. I want to nurture the type of interaction design that puts users and their need for information first.” —Sergio Nouvel, UX Magazine

An article that recently circulated on Mashable made the case for web design having no future because well-designed mass-market templates and templating tools already exist, and because content is now distributed on other platforms such as Facebook or Mobile apps and push services.

However, as a user researcher and interaction design specialist, I don’t see bands of feral unemployed web designers camping out at night in the park huddled under pages torn from their Adobe Illustrator how-to books, shivering in their faux lumberjack shirts, scraping together pennies to buy a bottle of artisanal craft beer.

And there’s certainly no downturn in demand for Web Design courses on lynda.com.
