Web design Today: The good, the bad, the nice and the ugly
With the advent of HTML5/CSS3 and Web fonts, things seemed to look
good for people with an aesthetic sense. At the same time an avalanche
of technical innovations destroyed all dreams of being able to fully
control the look of digital information. The old question: Is it
possible to design Websites that look nice and work well? Does good
Web design need to look ugly? Are there links, bridges, short cuts
between good user experience and nice aesthetics? A look into good and
bad practice of contemporary Web design.
