Unfinished Business: Art directing for the web, with Stephen Hay

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 Stephen Hay.

One fantastic quote from Stephen:

Storytelling is that trendy term, but I feel that sometimes it’s about a story, sometimes it’s about a feeling. These things are really hard to get across. You almost have to test all your metaphors, all your little ways that you can think of of describing this or portraying this idea.

I’m available for hire to consult on and design products and websites. Based in North Wales, I travel regularly to work with clients world-wide.
