Anderson Inspiration Yaron Schoen The job of a Web ‘product’ designer is to create frameworks for othersto express themselves. Thats a huge difference. Shipping is only the start of a long process. We need to make sure that users don’t interpret the product however they see fit because they may not understand how to use the product to express themselves. After shipping, we continue iterating and improving the product so that the user interprets less and expresses more. The saying ‘real artists ship’ doesn’t really apply to us designers. I would say ‘real designers nurture.’ — Yaron Schoen Eric E. Anderson Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY 11233, United States Lives in Brooklyn and makes a living creating a better web at Squarespace.
