Today’s web design is pretty exciting, and at the same time pretty demanding on its architects. With the desire for device agnostic interfaces and web sites, designers, more than ever, need to focus on function over form.
I recall a project in college where we were tasked with designing a chair. We could build it out of any material, make it any shape, etc. One of the only requirements was that it had to be usable (if you couldn’t sit on it, it was a failure), and it had to be able to support the weight of a 300 pound person.
