Dan Cederholm: Twenty Bits I Learned About Making Websites

When Dan Cederholm announced his first typeface, he had moved on from web design into type design. I was a bit sad and nostalgic. I learned web design, CSS techniques in particular, from reading Dan’s books. In Twenty Bits I Learned Making Websites, Dan shared his “little slice of web design history” and revealed some hints about leaving web design behind. The part about him not getting HTML is a bit baffled to me, but I understand his other reasons. Modern web design requires too many tools and frameworks. That’s why I am an old-school web designer who still crafts websites by hand from scratch and not relying on pre-packaged sites. Well, thanks Dan for all the knowledge you have shared and best of luck on your new endeavors.
