I’m slotted as a guest speaker for class of college of students enrolled in a web design course today, and in preparation I found myself listing all the ways the process has changed since I built my first site back in 1994.
With all the options in Content Management, using WordPress AS your website, and the abundance of customizable templates out there, is there a future in pure design? Does it make sense to anyone who is something other than a web developer?
Then I happened upon Seth Godin’s post today in which he posits a similar argument.
It’s likely, that for most people’s purposes, you don’t actually need an original design. As a web designer myself, I concede there are many clients for whom that’s not a requirement and I have been referring more and more people to WordPress for that reason in the last few years.
Good Enough vs. Amazing site, I guess that’s the question. What are some of your answers?
