I’m sat in today, waiting for the plumber to come and fix the hot tap in the bathroom. Instead of doing something constructive like tackling my ridiculous to-do list I’m fiddling with a design I started last night and wondering how I ever manage to finish these things.
I could never be a graphic designer… or a web designer for that matter. As per usual, I’m trying to add the finishing touches to a layout and find myself frustrated and confused by what should go where. How should I align the comments link, and should I make it big and bold to encourage people to comment, or less obvious so as not to detract from the entries? High contrast or low? Georgia or Trebuchet MS for the headings?
It’s all of these little things that make me crave the logic and sturdiness of cold, hard coding.
