I love to stress the fact that the message that design conveys is fluid. To each person we touch, we never know what they’ll try do or think first. We as designers have a great responsible to speak to many different kinds of people, sometimes worldwide, and get the message across. In Adobe’s blog, which is where I found this article, Cathi (the author) talks not only about the importance of designing for them not us, but about the message, as well as the devices we’ll be designing for. So much truth, thanks Cathi.
You will never hear the words “print is dying” come out of my mouth, not yet, but it’s quite true. We’re moving towards the digital age and if we as designers, marketers, and creative thinkers want to keep up with the masses, we have no choice other to evolve as well. Moving from desktop to digital isn’t just about resizing something. But it’s also about habits and psychology and putting the users first in all that we do. What comes first? What comes last?
