Jim Henson once said, “Simple is good.”
We used to spend a lot of time pushing around pixels in Photoshop although it didn't translate into what we'd finally see on our screen. The practice of designing for the web has changed as fast as “Mobile First" has become ancient wisdom. Open source development, new frameworks and fresh plug-ins are introduced to make the task of build-out easier and faster. I still love carrying around a fountain pen and a pad of paper because it all starts with a good idea and you never know when one will strike.
