Next week I’ll be back in my home state for the 2010 Front-End Design Conference, a single day design conference focused on content, presentation and behavior in St. Petersburg, FL. I’ll be speaking about how to Conquer the Blank Canvas (or take your designs from rough wireframes to awesome finished concepts).
It’s been interesting going through work that’s several years old. Much of it doesn’t exist anymore. Gone. Vanished. All that hard work, thinking, stressing… poof. It’s a nice reminder of what’s important, and the reality of the ever-evolving web. A lot of this junk is just temporary.
Sometimes this depresses me when I think about what we do. Architects build monuments that last for centuries. Authors craft stories that, if well told, live forever. But the web is so transient, so fleeting — how long can anything we make really stick around? Will any of my work survive even the next 5 years? It’s a different kind of craftsmanship; it only meets the demands of the moment. Makes me wish I built furniture instead.
