Homework I Gave Web Designers
Published on for Cloud Four
From 2008 through 2010 I taught Internet Typography and Web Standards courses part-time at a local art school. One of my goals was to balance students’ understanding of the web’s constraints with its potential. Too much focus on the former and the work loses its uniqueness, its personality, its voice. But too much of the latter and the work feels janky, unwieldy, counter-intuitive.
I don’t know if I succeeded, but one assignment was my favorite.
