Peeking inside a web designer’s mind


Having wrestled with designing my own web sites in a rather amateurish fashion, I'm fascinated with the way in which professional designers might go about the process. I've also been marvelling at the gorgeous designs in the CSS Zen Garden, so I noted Douglas Bowman's description of the processes involved in his Zen Garden entry with great interest. I found it interesting that the 'measure twice, cut once' advice holds even with an electronic product. I think that might be at least part of my problem: I rush in there without planning what I want to do clearly enough, and then spend a lot of time bumbling about and changing my mind after I've written a lot of code.
