Issue No. 254 of A List Apart, for people who make websites, is all about design:
Hamid goes micro

- Design is in the Details
- Stop worrying about how good a designer you are, and start worrying about the myriad tiny details that can elevate your work from passable to near-perfect.
Rutledge goes macro
From small details to the big picture: designer Andy Rutledge, never one to lack an opinion or mince a word, challenges our cherished belief that design is synonymous with creativity.
- On Creativity
