Unfinished Business: Art directing for the web, with Rob Weychert

I’m currently writing a hardboiled web design book about Art Directing for the Web, so in this season of the Unfinished Business podcast I’m discussing art directing with my guests who are some of the most experienced art directors and designers working on the web today. This week I talk about art direction Rob Weychert.

One fantastic quote from Rob:

I think as the web’s capabilities have from a traditional design perspective started to catch up to what we’ve been able to do in print for so long. Yeah, the term art direction needs to be more accommodating because it used to be so much about this particular level of control, and in some sense sort of self-expression. Whereas as now it’s available in this context that is much more fluid and needs to accommodate all different kinds of people who might not be able to even see what we’re designing for them.
